Creating Disk Image that works on OS 9 & OS X
My Carbon application has a Mach-O Framework embedded in its bundle. I
created the framework to get at one Mach-O only function and it works
But, the problem comes when distributing this app. Originally, I just
created a stuffit archive and distributed this way. This works fine for
OS 9 (which doesn't need to call the Mach-O Framework). But under OS X,
it fails because the symbolic links to the various components of my
framework aren't set up properly when unstuffing the data.
So, I created a disk image using Disk Copy under OS X, and everything is
fine again ...Using dd to copy disk partition corrupts complete target disk
I have an Ultra-10 with Solaris 9:
SunOS sunny 5.9 Generic_112233-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
I have 2 disk drives installed. The first one is a Seagate,
the second one a Samsung.
I want to make a backup copy of my root partition,
which currently is on /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0, on my
second disk which is /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0. The target partition
is larger than the source partition.

...expanding a disk image using dd
I have a disk image I am wanting to expand to a larger size. I have been
trying to use dd to create a new disk image like so:
dd if=root_fs_i386 of=test.img bs=$[1024**2] count=200
to my knowledge, that should be writing from root_fs_i386 to test.img (bs
is 512) and disk image of 200 MB. Does not work, unfortunately.
I attempted to create a test image (test.img), format it for ext2fs and dd
root_fs_i386 to that image, but the resulting test.img gets cheerfully
resized to 92 MB, the size of the original image.
I have been trying out permutations on the above to resolve the issue,...Partitioning disks using Linux FDISK
OK. Is this ever going to work?
I'm formatting the partitions using Linux's FDISK command. Using this
I'm able to set the Sun disk label and also set the partition types as
I can boot from my linux CD and see all the partitions which I can
quite happily backup and restore using a linux utility. Boot block is
causing me problems at the moment though...
Is there any reason this won't work? Does the sun install do anything
else special at install time?

I've downloaded Llamatron from the llamasoft site, but it's a .zip file
which expands to the raw .prg files etc.. What I need is a disk image
that I can use either with Hatari or NoSTalgia.
Are there any utilities for turning a folder into a disk image at all?
Would prefer OS X utils, but platform doesn't really matter too much as
I have VMware images of Windows and Linux (Ubuntu) too.

I installed OS 10.5.6 on a clean partition, and it is working well.
Previously I was using OS 10.2.8 which has two programs, Disk Copy, which
lets you make encrypted or not encrypted disk images, and Disk Utility,
which is for other things like verifying and repairing disks.
How can I make encrypted disk images using OS 10.5.6? The Disk Utility of
10.5.6 seems to be about the same as the Disk Utility of 10.2.8, neither
of which can create disk images.

I have a logical disk built out of a RAID array (Mylex 960 Controller).
I want to make a bit image copy of the disk to tape. The idea is that
if the disk gets clobbered, I can just restore the image from tape.
IOW, I want a "hands off" restore process that recreates the entire
disk as it was at the time of the image snapshot. I want to preserve
everything including the boot sector and loader...

I am writing a script that
- write a disk image that creates 2 partitions, one has files, the
other is empty
- untar an archive to the empty partition
This is done on a SD card /dev/sdd
However, after the dd command, the partitions do not appear as /dev/
sdd1 and /dev/sdd2 as they should. However if I use fdisk I can see
them. They only appear after I remove the card and plug it back. The
result is that my script fails to mount the 2nd partition after the dd
How can I tell the kernel to reload the disk table (however it's
called) after the dd command?

I am using Mac OS X 10.4.8 on a Mac Pro with the original hard drive.
I am unable to create a disk image using Disk Utility. I get the
"Unable to create "disk0s2.dmg".
This happens whether I select the top level Hard Drive icon or the
"MacIntosh HD" one representing the partition. And it happens whether
I try to save to a file on the same disk or on an external drive.
When I make an image of just a folder, it works.
Pressing Ctrl-Option-Esc shows only the Finder and Disk Utility
The result is the same if I boo...how to use partitioned IDE hard disk of windows in Suse Linux

I swapped the internal HDD in my laptop for a larger one and
migrated my Linux OS by making images of the / and /home
partitions with partimage and then restoring these images to
the new partitions.
The partimage documentation states that one can restore an
image to a partition that is larger than the original
filesystem size but that space may be lost or become
unavailable doing this.
I want / and /home to live in larger partitions than they
did on the old drive. Hence, I first created larger
partitions for them on the new drive and then tried to
shrink them to the exact same size...Restoring Retrospect data to an OS X disk image
I posted this on my semi-private personal tech blog:
It's an interesting enough technique I'll share it here. I have a hunch
it's a good way to do bare metal restore from Retrospect Pro/Windows to
a Mac, and perhaps even for Retrospect/Mac. Much faster than first
doing a full OS install back to the exact identity of the dead disk,
then installing the Retrospect client, then restoring and still having
problems ... I have NOT tested whether I can do a complete restore
however, I was creating the i...Creating a disk image from an external hard drive using Parallels Transporter
My PC laptop died (bad motherboard) and I decided to go Mac. I bought
a PowerBook Pro and Parallels. I took out the healthy PC laptop drive
and put it in a USB enclosure and confirmed it works properly.
I would now like to create an image of my old laptop (including all my
apps and preferences--a perfect copy) to put on my Mac. However, it
appears as if Transporter will only work if the source drive is
currently running an OS (in this case, XP Pro). Since my laptop drive
is only accessible as an external hard drive, Transporter doesn't
recognize it. Is there a way to do this? The only...
