I have a Dell Inspiron 530, 3GB Ram, Core 2 Duo E6600, eVGA GeForce 9600GT SC. I successfully installed Hazard's build of Snow Leopard onto Virtualbox. I do not have a retail DVD of Mac OS X, nor any blank DVDs to burn. How do I go about installing this build on my spare hard drive? The only thing I have to work with is an 8GB Sandisk usb drive, which really only reads 7.48GB. Any help would be appreciated. I can get the USB drive to read through virtualbox, and am able to re-partition it to Journaled. I just don't know how to get it onto the usb drive and make it bootable.

A retail copy of Snow Leopard can be still be obtained inexpensively; amazon.com has it for sale around the fifty-dollar mark.

Don't know if Lion Disk Maker - http://blog.gete.net...n-diskmaker-us/ - will work with a butchered pirate copy of Snow Leopard, but it might be worth trying. I've successfully used that utility with both Lion and Mountain Lion, bought from the App Store.

Also you can get the Snow Leopard disk from Apple for $20.

Use my ML guide in my sig.
