Good day

Anyone knows how to do this?

Searching didn't help me

I tried to do this with plenty of programs:

WinISO,PowerISO,MagicISO,UltraISO,TransMAC,MacDriv e,ISOBuster,Nero,Disk Utility(MAC),hdiutil(MAC) - for example hdiutil makehybrid -o disk_hybrid.iso macos.iso

and I didn't suceeded

ISOBuster, MagicISO, UltraISO and others show me that this is HFS+ ISO image.
If I convert this image to DMG with Disk Utility this DMG doesn't open in UltraISO and when I convert it to ISO with hdiutil ISO remains the same (HFS+)
UltraISO said me, that it couldn't save HFS+ volum
I need that it will be boot Hybrid HFS/ISO (this is a MAC OS X 10.4.10 Intel Developer Edition installation disk) becuase, for example Magic ISO can convert him but resulting ISO isn't bootable.

Thanks in advance

dark_elf is offline;t=2120;r=1

So, I do this way

1. mount -t hfsplus -o loop macosx10.4.10.iso /dev/cdrom0 (successfully)

2. mkisofs -o cd.iso -hfs -hfs-bless "/media/cdrom0/System" -mac-name /media/cdrom0

but resulting image isn't bootable

Any idea about proper command line parameters for mkisofs?
QUOTE Thanks
