Then

mf$ hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o BT5R2-GNOME-64.img BT5R2-GNOME-64.iso
mf$ diskutil list /dev/disk2 #(careful here)
mf$ dd if=./BT5R2-GNOME-64.img.dmg of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m

 

Note: that bs=1m (without it the speed is going to be less than 1mb/sec, with it it's 10mb/sec)

Note2: we're using rdisk2 instead of disk2, again this way it's faster.

  1. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate
    you taking the time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.

    But so what, it was still worth it!
