After repairing my new powerbook G4, i had to reinstall Mac OS X Tiger on it. I could have installed Leopard, but i just feel Leopard is just too new to be good, while tiger has been there for a while and is very stable and real-life proofed.
Problem is: i had no installation CD whatsoever. So i looked for a torrent and after a few tries, i finally found a toast image.
Yet that’s a 2+gigs image, while the powerbook optical combo does not allow for DVD burning, so i looked after a way to burn it on my good old Acer running Windows XP.
So without further ado, here is..
how to convert a .toast image file into a working .iso file
- install Dameon Tools
- create one virtual drive
- mount the .toast file in the virtual drive
- install isobuster, select the virtual drive
- right-click the session of the virtual drive and choose “extract raw but convert to user data”. Pick the destination
- when the convertion is done, simply rename the created file to .iso, and use a tool such as the free imgBurn to burn it onto a DVD.
There, you’re done! You can now use that created DVD on your mac, although the .toast file was downloaded on your PC.
