Many users have faced issues while installing an Operating System on their personal computers. And one of the major reason for this is the need of a Bootable Disc/Disk. A Bootable Disc/Disk contains the setup files of an Operating System which boot automatically when the computer starts.
- A blank CD/DVD.
- Mac OS X
- Image file of Operating System. Usually it is .ISO
- Locate the image file. Right click on it. Open With, DiskImageMounter.
- Go to Spotlight and search for Disk Utility.
- Put the CD/DVD in the optical drive of your Mac.
- Right click on the image file in Disk Utility and click on Burn ISO.
- The image files will start writing on the disc and soon you will have a bootable disc/disk.
Testing The Disc/Disk
Before testing the disc, make sure that the Optical Drive is on the top of the list in the boot order. To check the boot order, go to your computer’s BIOS settings. For each computer this is different, depending on the manufacturer.
Just search Google or try pressing F2 or F4 or F8 or F12 when your computer boots.
