Windows 8 installation paradox

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am currently on a computer only running 10.8.2 on a SSD, with all my data on a HDD RAID configured under Mountain Lion.

Since I also need to use windows applications, I bought another identical SSD just for it but now, under Os X, I have no idea how to make a bootable windows 8 installation usb disk.


I tried unetbootin to restore the .iso on a 8 Gb compact flash, but when I then try to boot from it, I receive a "Missing Operating System" error.


I tried to convert the .iso to a .dmg with the DMGConverter app, then to restore it with Disk Utility, and again it didn't work.


Can anybody give me a suggestion?


Thanks for reading!

No, I couldn't, I get the 254 error because of Disk Utility incompatibility with ISO9660.


Anyway, I solved the problem relying on a Windows laptop I have.
