Restore a full-disk .dmg file to a raw block device
Authored by: daveosborne on Jun 19, '13 11:44:45AM

Great post. However, when I tried this I got a "Resource busy" error.
In order to avoid this problem, you have to make sure the mac OS isn't "using" the device first. To do this just open the DiskUtility.app, and on the target USB hard drive, unmount any of it's partitions. Make sure to not eject the USB hard drive so that the device is still available in DiskUtility and shows up in the result from 'diskutil list'.
