Not working with iSight iMac Install Disks
Authored by: bux on Dec 19, '05 09:12:29PM

Maybe this works with older G5 Install disks, or perhaps there's a step missing, but when I try this with the Install disk from the G5 iSight iMac I get the following error when attempting to copy the modified file onto the new disk image:

"OsInstall.dist cannot be moved because 'Contents' cannot be modified."

Any suggestions? Tried checking "ignore ownership" in get info, but no luck there either.

Same here. Somehow Apple has made the Disc and any copied image not writable. I notice that in the 'Get Info' window for the mounted Disc Image under Permissions it says that the Owner is 'System'.
