you don't really need Uni***** to create your installation:


open the .dmg folder (or app) and locate the "Mac Osx BaseSystem.dmg", Packages folder, and mach_kernel (is hidden, so make first visible using "Show all Files.app" search it on google), copy all to your Desktop.

Then restores the Mac Osx BaseSystem.dmg on your usb key with Disk Utility.


Once this is done, navigate to the key just restored, in System/Installation/ and deletes the link to the "Packages", and replace with the real folder "Packages", copied before on the desktop. After copy mach_kernel into the root of Usb key. done


Make usb bootable:


Now install the bootloader:


pointing to your Usb key



Copy the kexts attached and install to System/Library/Extensions:


-FakeSMC.kext (is the mandatory)

-NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (real need for power management until you've done installation)

-AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext (if you need Laptop support keyboard and trackpad)



-Copy Extra folder attached, in the root of Usb stick.



Now you're ready!!!
