I find using these commands myself regularly, so decided to write them down in a separate article for not having to find the information between lines.
So here it goes. Remember to choose right disk! otherwise, you could override your system! Replace
/your/image/path/here with the path to your image file,
diskX with your disk and
your-linux-image.iso with your image file.
diskutil list sudo diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskX sudo dd bs=4m if=/your/image/path/here/your-linux-image.iso of=/dev/rdiskX
/dev/rdisk (with letter R, instead of just “disk”) the command is 20 times faster on Mac Os X. Have fun installing!
