How to Make a Bootable Snow leopard USB Stick
I have a Retail Disk / Developers Seed of Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6 build 10A432, but i need to make a bootable USB disk so i can install Snow Leopard using a memory stick but how ?? I just got this question from a user through comment and i decided to answer him in a detail. To make a bootable USB disk we need a USB memory stick minimum 8GB, Working Leopard(10.5.X) or Tiger (10.4.X), Retail Disk or Developer Seed of latest build of Snow Leopard. If you fulfils the requirement then proceed the following steps.
Step 1). Plug you USB drive and launch Disk Utility, navigate to your USB stick and format it. In this guide we named it SL USB STICK.
Step Two). Now select the Restore tab in the top right, Here select your Source and Destination.
- Source is the Snow Leopard, if you have a Developer Seed in .dmg format then browse or drag n drop can also works, if you have a retail disk then simply drag n drop to source.
- Destination is the SL USB STICK you formatted in step one, so simply drag n drop to destination. Make sure to uncheck Erase destination and then hit the Restore button.
