when you make the usb bootable you don't have to actually install on the mac your running you just have to dload it thru store correct?

hi

 

u dont have a mac .... u have a hack

 

so i think u must read a lot , mac os x is not windows, mac os x is developed for macintosh pc

 

hack is 99 % of reading, googling, persistency and 1 % of luck u hardware are compatible

 

use this to acess the pen drive
