Special utility from cvad & russian MAC community for new hackintosh users.
BootDisk Utility is intended to make a external bootable USB Flash Disk by installing to it special Data set (MBR, PBR sectors and Data files) of EFI-based Clover bootloader & Chameleon bootloaders.
In the root directory of the boot disk are numbered boot files. At boot time, for 3 seconds when the flashing line at the top left of the screen, press the corresponding key:
- boot (Clover 64bit-default) - no key
- boot2 (Chameleon) - 2
- boot3 (Clover 32bit - in the last Clover revisions - not included) - 3
- boot6 (Clover 64bit - the same default) - 6
Manuals and Installation:
- Format the flash drive into two partitions - 1st Clover, 2nd to deploy a disk image (or final distribution MACOSX installed system).
- Distro, of course, must meet all the requirements for installation on PC (see related topics on installation).
- The image can be saved by itself BDU, to share with friends.
- Download the distribution (*. Dmg), unpack from menu Tools and restore the file with hfs extension to the 2nd flash partition.
- Partition size should be no smaller then original hfs file.
- Prepare your Clover config, as described in the relevant forum threads.
- BDU limitations: For security reasons, completely off the write to all partitions of the Windows system drive. With the other drives you can try to play.
- In test mode, you can work with non-USB (only MBR) disks.
- The info provided is not more than 4 primary partition (Extended partitions are not shown in detail - it makes no sense).
- Attention: If you select Format - All information (all partitions) on the flash drive will be destroyed. Therefore, please save your important partitions to a file.
How to manually:
- List dmg distr file:
Install 7-Zip 7z.exe l -tdmg *.dmg
- Extract hfs-file from dmg distr:
7z.exe e -tdmg *.dmg *.hfs
- If you get an error when you extract hfs-image from InstallESD.dmg try this:
7z.exe x -tXar -r InstallESD.dmg InstallESD.dmg
Then use another extracted InstallMacOSX.pkg\InstallESD.dmg with BDU.
- Extract new Clover rev. files from Clover*.pkg distr:
Install 7-Zip Unpack_Clover_PKG.bat Clover*.pkg
