Macintosh: Burning a disk image of Parted Magic .iso


Macintosh OS X 10.3 or later

IMPORTANT NOTE: Parted Magic should only be downloaded and used by an IT Professional or other qualified University department such as the IT Support Center.

Talk to your departmental IT Professional (if your department has one) or contact IT Client Support & Services before downloading or using Parted Magic on UD equipment. Incorrectly burning a disk image for this boot cd could irreparably damage your Mac.

Also, for earlier versions of the Mac OS, you may need to download disc burning software.

  1. Download the .iso file from the Parted Magic website, but do not try to open it. Burn the .iso file (aka disc image) to a blank disc.

  2. Insert a blank disc (e.g. CD, DVD, BD) into your PC or desktop computer.

  3. From your Applications folder in Finder double-click the Utilities folder.

  4. In the Utilities folder, double-click the Disk Utility to launch the application.

  5. From the File drop-down menu, select Open Disk Image...

  6. Click the .iso file you downloaded from the Parted Magic website so that the file is highlighted (selected), and click Select.

  7. From the Volume, Disk, Image list in your Disk Utility select the .iso file you selected in step #6 so that it is highlighted.

  8. Click Burn.

  9. When the .iso has finished burning to the disc, click Close and eject the disc from the computer.

Visit the Apple Support pages for earlier version instructions (10.0 through 10.2.8).
