Hey guys Im trying to make a Bootable USB snow leopard, so I can upgrade my MacBook with a broken super drive........but having ZERO luck!

Have my DMG of Mac.OS.X.10.6.3.Retail and go into Disk Utility to restore it to the USB stick (32GB formatted to Mac Journalled). but when I try and restore I get a pop up saying:

"Unable to attach "Mac.OS.X.10.6.3.Retail.dmg".(no mountable file systems)"

I am sorry to be suspicious, but a file name like Mac.OS.X.10.6.3.Retail.dmg sound like you have downloaded a torrent

Buy the retail disk and get a friend to create the USB stick, all you have to do is make sure the usb stick is partitioned to OSX journaled with a GUID partition table (that's in the partition options button)

It is a downloaded torrent, as I said before I don't have a working CD drive.....and I don't know any other mac users in person.

We allow no discussion of any Illegal Torrents here at Mac Forums. Read our Community Guidelines. No discussion of any pirated software. OSX Snow Leopard is just $29. Buy it.
