Hey guys. I've ALMOST created a bootable LiveCD of OS X 10.4.3 8F1111. I did this by getting Clone X, creating a dmg, dumping the dmg's contents, adding rosetta and the darwin bootloader, and finally putting it all into the original 10.4.3 install dvd image which I had emptied earlier. The big problem now is that when I boot the dvd, there are a bunch of errors regarding file permission, etc. I can't run repair disk permissions on this dmg in OS X because it its being mounted as read only. I need to use this dmg because i need the bootable information table at the beginning of the disk which references the darwin bootloader. I don't know how to append the boot table to a converted iso file because the file contains hfs partitions and UltraISO can only read, not write hybird cds. Can someone give me help in either getting a dmg to undergo repair disk permissions, or manually adding the boot table to the dmg file?

Btw, right now, i boot into wat looks like the single user mode shell. I'm almost certain that if i can get past this problem, the LiveCD will boot GUI.


Revenge, I've send you a Pm about this because I've pass this step a week ago, this was the easy part.
First you need to check things: Did you set proper Ramdisk? because Tiger needs to write into something to be able to boot. Second Is not better we associate together to finish either your or my project to make the realease quickly?
See my post "http://forum.osx86pr...showtopic=9879"

The way you did you live disk is insteresting but quite complicated : In my site Area86.info go to the section links, there is interresting ressources for you. Hope we can achieve this dream together since i'm full of works to complete and i already sparing all my free time to this.

I could but didn't... :blink:. So far I going to post my tutorial in few hours, just need to ,finish a work for a client first, then you will have a point to start.
Tiger use a different boot method than sooner Os X. If you have a mac and have Panther or sooner Try the BootCd Soft, i will help you find some answer. So far I see 3 people :angel: including me doing that. I don't any compatible AMD proc i need beta test to see if my work does the job it. I've made the Cd In Os X since working under XP seems to be a waste of time for that. It's even better to work under PPC environement to do it but the Macbook pro is fine too.

lol alright cool I'll be waiting anxiously

I'm almost sad, every time I start a new project somebody beats me to it and my lazyness forces me to abandon my own work in favor of their already working solution... so until I see your method my work continues haha I'm actually pretty happy with what I've got going so far this is good fun

UPDATE: Project is currently not making any progress, even though work is being done. Reason: DRX has run into legal issues (SHOCK), so he is modifying the process to avoid these issues. Stay tuned for more.

*sigh, well folks it looks like DrX is officially "dead" or sued out of his ass from what I suspect. I haven't been truely active in OSX86 stuff for months now. However, if there is still a lot of interest in a "Live" cd system, I think I can try and pickup where he left off... Your opinion please:

Go for it, if you ask me. Have you been using a virtual RAM drive as system drive? Because that can be written to.
