    How to burn a .img file to a usb stick
    Why can I not figure this out?

    I need to create a bootable usb stick with freenas .img file so that I can configure a NAS machine. I have the file, I have the usb thumb drive. What I don't have is the knowledge of how to do this on my MBP. Can this be done?

    Thanks,
    Hutch

    I have the file,
    As an image? If so just drag and drop. As an ordinary file type? Use Disk Utility, which is in the Applications>Utilities folder.

    As an image. I need to make the USB stick bootable. Seems that when I tried the drag and drop, it just put the file on the stick. Will check again this eve.

    Thanks,
