So last week I bought a DVD (from eBay), which was supposed to be or I had assumed to be a Mac OS X Yosemite installer. I wanted to use this DVD to install Mac OS X Yosemite into VirtualBox on my Windows 8.1 PC. Unfortunately, I was unable to do it, even after I tried to convert the DVD into an ISO, and also tried to convert the DVD into a USB "bootable" drive. Nothing worked. I even tried to install the DVD into VMWare, also with no success. If anyone has any suggestions or can offer help on this matter, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
HI guys, First of, sry for the bad english, but i'm sure you will understand :) I watch Hak5 a lot, and i love the show, i learned a lot from it, and use it at work all the time :) This is my first post on the forum, i actually created the account to make it, so although i'm new here i hope you guys are going to welcome and help me out :) quick story: At work i often have to burn a lot of dvd's that should be identical and from the same .iso or .img. always about ~5-30. Reason: Burning all those dvd's one by one manually takes a lot of time.. i get paid for it, but god damn its boring just to babysit the cd/dvd writer and click the next button everytime one disc finish. It would be great to be able to do something at the same time the box is burning an entire batch. Right now i only have 1 DVD cd/dvd writer (since parallel burning is not supported in the GUI apps i found) but the boss said yes to buy 5-10 dvd cd/dvd writers if i could get this project up and running. What is it, i want to build exactly???: 1 Linux box, that is able to burn the same .iso or .img file to multiple dvd burners at the same time (simultaneously/parallel). It should run linux And the script/program should be able to run in CLI only, so no GUI. Related software: I have tried (a demo) of a software called DiscJuggler ( http://en.wikipedia....iki/DiscJuggler ) and it does exactly what i want, BUT not i CLI / shell, and only runs on windows. The good thing about This discjuggler application is that you can set it to buffer 512MB of the disc to RAM and thereby the speed of the harddrive does not impact if you burn to multiple discs at once! my test box ran it of a really old 40 GB 7200 RPM drive, with no problems! Another good thing about this software is that i can set it to burn 50 copy's of the same .iso, then select 5 cd/dvd writers and press start. It will then burn thoose 5 disc's, then eject and wait for 5 blanks disc's to be inserted. Then it continues until i has completed burning the 50 i need. My skills: I guess i need to write some sort of script for this myself, since i cant find anything simular to what i need on google, i am pretty good at PHP/html, but this wont help me a lot here, so i hope you guys can help me out here, it would be appreciatet alot!! I have used linux for about 4 years, i use Arch linux daily, and i am not a total noob, but some thing i still need to learn.. I really hope you guys can help me out! (sorry for the long post, hope it wasn't too much reading..)
