How to create MAC-DVD for Mountain Lion 10.8 for k2000 netboot?

07/02/2013 4279 views

Hello,

the only way to get Mountain Lion 10.8.x is via AppStore. Now im having a .app datafile but what i need is a installation DVD for the k2000 media manager.

I did different things:

-burning a bootable DVD with the .dmg file (media manager couldn`t use it for a bootenvironment)

-burning a DVD with a special app on MAC

-converting the .dmg file to .iso on a windows client (but wasnt able to burn a CD afterwards)

-extracting the .dmg file from the .dmg file (because its a library) converted it to an iso and tried to burn it -> failed

Is there a best practise for  burning the Mountain Lion 10.8 .app file on a DVD, wich is usable in the end for the K2000 Media Manager?

My K2000 is on the right version to support 10.8

 

Thanks & Greetings

If you have the Install Mountain Lion app, you go right click the app and do Show Package Contents.  Navigate to Contents->SharedSupport and you will find a file called InstallESD.dmg.  Mount up this DMG and then point your MediaManager to that as your Source Media for the Netboot.

you can use lion disk maker to create a bootable USB or DVD and then point the media manager to it.
