Hi all

I have a 6gb DMG of snow leopard that I want to install on my mac. I have a 16gb CF card that I want to use to boot the DMG from. Its current file format is FAT-32 which only lets me copy a maximum of 4gb to. If i convert the CF card to NFTS i can copy as much as I like. Problem is im not sure how to reformat to NFTS from FAT-32. ???

Thx

A DMG copy of Snow leopard sounds like you have got if from a friends copy or torrent site.

We dont discuss copying licensed software on the forum. A brand new boxed copy of Snow Leopard is only $29

Sounds like a $29 mistake to me. Sorry, you're not going to get assistance here with trying to make a pirated copy work.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not to mention you obviously haven't even bothered to search at all or you would know that Macs can't do NTFS.
