How to Copy an ISO to a USB Drive from Mac OS X with dd

 

 If you have downloaded an ISO image of another operating system, say Ubuntu Linux or Windows 10, and you wish to turn that ISO image file into a bootable USB installer drive using a USB flash drive or USB key, you’ll find the most reliable way to copy or ‘burn’ the ISO to that

target USB volume is by turning to the command line of Mac OS X. There are alternative solutions, but this command line approach using dd requires no third party downloads, it is quite fast, and is consistently reliable in producing bootable volumes out of ISO files.


It’s important to note this is somewhat advanced and should only be used by Mac users who are thoroughly comfortable with the command line. By using sudo dd, there is little margin for error, and a wrongly implicated disk identifier could result in permanent data loss. That risk makes this method not appropriate for novice OS X users, instead, those users should turn to the simpler approach of using Disk Utility to burn an ISO the traditional way instead.

 

How to Copy an ISO File to a Target Drive Using ‘dd’ in Mac OS X

This will erase the target volume, replacing whatever data is on the destination drive with the ISO contents. There is no confirmation, therefore it is critical you use the proper drive identifier and proper syntax to avoid erasing the wrong thing. You should back up the Mac with Time Machine before beginning.

    1. Attach the target USB drive to the Mac if you haven’t done so yet, then launch Terminal
    2. Type the following command to print a list of attached volumes on the Mac:

diskutil list

This may look something like the following, it will be different on every Mac:

$ diskutil list
/dev/disk0
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_CoreStorage 250.1 GB disk0s2
3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.1 MB disk0s3
/dev/disk1
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD *249.8 GB disk1
Logical Volume on disk0s2
Unlocked Encrypted
/dev/disk3
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: partition_scheme *5.3 MB disk3
1: partition_map 32.3 KB disk3s1
2: FAT_32 THE_DESTINATION 8.2 GB disk3s2
/dev/disk4
#: TYPE NAME

 

    1. Locate the USB volume name of the target drive (in this example, “THE_DESTINATION”) and make note of the identifier (in this example, “disk3s2″)
locate usb
    1. Unmount the target volume using the following command, replacing the identifier as appropriate:

sudo umount /dev/(IDENTIFIER)

 

Again using the above example, which is not universally applicable:

sudo umount /dev/disk3s2

 

    1. You’re now ready to format the target drive and ‘burn’ the ISO to that USB volume – this will erase all data on the target drive replacing it with the ISO, this can not be undone – it is absolutely critical that you target the proper identifier to avoid unintended data loss. Assuming you know what you’re doing, replace the iso path with the ISO to burn to the intended target identifier volume using the following command:

sudo dd if=/path/image.iso of=/dev/r(IDENTIFIER) bs=1m

 

For example, with a Windows ISO named ‘Windows10_x64_EN-US.iso’ on the desktop, the syntax would be:

sudo dd if=~/Desktop/Windows10_x64_EN-US.iso of=/dev/rdisk3s2 bs=1m

 

Note that an ‘r’ signifier is placed in front of the disk identifier, this makes the command much faster. The ‘bs=1m’ at the end is for blocksize, which also speeds up the process. Neither of these adjustments are necessary to copy the ISO to the disk image successfully, it just results in a notably faster experience.

 

  1. When you’re certain the syntax is proper, hit return and enter the administrator password, the copy process will begin immediately

There is no progress bar so just wait it out, how long the ISO copy process takes depends on a variety of things, including the speed of the Mac, the speed of the target volume, and the size of the ISO file being copied or burned to the destination.

When finished, you can eject the volume, it’s ready to go.

diskutil eject /dev/(IDENTIFIER)

 

For what it’s worth, this works to copy ISO images that aren’t boot volumes and installers too. For example, if you made an ISO yourself of a volume, you could use the above command sequence to copy that ISO to another volume as well.

We’ve covered a similar dd trick, but the modifications outlined here make the above process faster and more reliable for some users. This method should work fine in all versions of OS X, regardless of what’s running on the Mac.

If you know of another method to quickly turn ISO images into bootable install volumes, do let us know in the comments!

Product Notes


Before loading clothing make sure V4 is loaded, selected and zeroed. Turn off Inverse Kinematics select 'figure' from the 'menu bar' then 'use Inverse Kinematics' un-tick 'left leg' and 'right leg'. To zero the figure select 'window' from the 'menu bar' then 'joint editor'  make sure v4's body is selected and click 'zero figure'.

Rust Top
 Make sure the v4 figure that you want to conform the top to is selected and load the top. Make sure the top is selected and select 'Figure' from the 'menu bar' then 'conform to' click the drop down and select 'Victoria4' and click OK. Click 'Figure' again and this time click 'set figure parent' then scroll down and select Victoria4's 'body' from the list and click 'OK'. Make sure the top figure is selected and go to V4's pose folder 'magnetize clothing' and choose the correct 'magnetize' for the figure. Pose Vicky and change her morphs as you wish.

Skirt and sleeves
Repeat the same steps as for the Top.

The bones for the Skirt are controlled by dials in the figures body parameters. Simply select the body of the skirt and move the 'Twist' 'SidetoSide' and 'Bend' dials for the 'left skirt,' 'right skirt' and 'skirt' for the whole skirt, under 'Skirt movement.'

Note: The skirt is supposed to be very tight fitting, if there is poke through at the top of the thighs at the side or on the hip then use the "left skirt' 'right skirt' "sidetoside' dials to make sure that the bottom of the skirt is sitting as close as possible to the thighs, this will pull the top of the skirt out removing the poke through.
