ideas for live cd - for powerpc and x86 the same cd

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


i was searching in the net about hd repairing and data rescue on macosx.

i discover several programs,and many of them has a dual-bootable cd

of tiger with the application.

in there website you can read the cd are double boot,for mac and powerpc.

the applications are filesalvage 5,diskwarrior,drivegenius.


i think if you add the darwin bootloader and change the x86 kernel you

would have dual cd.


other option is use clone x 3 for make a bootable disk with tiger ,making it in a craked

tiger x86,but i think the other is better option.


you can also use dasboot to make a usb bootable with macosx.


i hope your answers.

hello again.


that morning i make the test in a powerpc machine,a minimac,i have not


i use bootcd of drive genius which is a dualboot cd,for ppc and intelmac.

i install in my minimac the applications i wanted for the cd and use

dasboot for make a usbkey boot.

when it finish it ,i had a usbkey bootable of 1 gb ,with 714,7 megas of disk fulled.

and the app i need.the macosx kernel was 10.4.7 .


now i have to reboot and use it ,but i have several problems.the mac doesnt wanna

load with usb!!

i tried also modifique the bootcd.i make a copy, mount it as readwrite,and add files.

and i have a iso with 680 megas.


can i copy the full cd in a darwin bootable iso and use on no-mac ppc??


i only did it to know how many space it used ,in usb and/or cd.

i think it would interesting make it in a hackintel ,using the same technique,create

a usb-key bootloader with that cd ,reboot with it,remove noutils things (ppc binary with Monolingual and use modbin and rammjet script to make a x86 boot cd with programs to restore and data forensic.

i dont wanna more programs than terminal and several rescue and forensic utils,and

maybe spothlight for searching in data.


i think it would be also good,disable sound drivers and other kind of drivers,only activate net,hd ,usb,keyboards and mouses,for booting faster.
