.RAW file to .ISO

.RAW file to .ISO

Postby dsbcourtney » 05 Jan 2018, 16:51

Hello,

I have downloaded what I thought was Mountain Lion (10.8) after which I received the following file (after unzipping):

OlarilaHS.raw

How do I get this onto a bootable USB drive or into an ISO file?

I have tried various pieces of software but none of them seem to work, the usb just ends up appearing blank..

IMAGEUSB
POWERISO7
WIN32DISKIMAGER

Can anyone shed any light please?

Thanks

Dave

Hi,

use Win32 Disk Imager, the USB won't be readable under Windows unless you use some HFS+ support software, but it will be bootable, just select it as boot device in BIOS.

Thank you for your response. This however doesn't seem to be working.

It goes through the whole process of writing to the USB but then at the end the USB stick shows blank and says has 8GB free still and when i try to boot from it on my VirtualBox it just says that there is no boot device to boot from.

I tried formatting to exFAT and trying that but still it doesn't like it. I have a linux box with CentOS can I convert to .ISO from that?

It's probably your virtual machine configuration. I never tried to boot from USB in a virtual machine, but if you write the raw file using Win32 Disk Imager it will boot in a PC (legacy BIOS, not UEFI).

You can't convert raw to iso, they have different boot structures. If you want a DVD iso download this
