Flash For Snow Leopard Mac
This was tested using an iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 with MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 installed. The flash drive needs to be at least 8 GB in size. The Snow Leopard ISO file was the same as discussed in this answer, which should be the same ISO you have linked to in your question.
Flash For Snow Leopard Mac
Note: This flashdrive will be using the Apple Partition Map scheme. This differs from the flash drive created using the Disk Utility, which used the Master Boot Record scheme. In other words, there is more than one way to create a USB flash drive installer from a Snow Leopard ISO file.
Enter the commands given below to create the USB flash drive installer. Here, an assumption is made that the ISO file name is snow leopard install.iso and the file resides in your Downloads folder. Also, an assumption is made that the identifier is disk2. If necessary, make the appropriate substitutions.
Enter the command given below to determine if any volumes on the flash drive are mounted. If there are mounted volumes, then use the sudo unmount command to unmount them before proceeding. Here, an assumption is made that the name for the flash drive is sdb. If necessary, make the appropriate substitutions in the rest of the steps.

I have a 2008 MacBook Air (MB003LL/A / MacBookAir1,1 / A1237 / 2142), and I am trying to reformat it with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, using the retail install DVD image snowleopard_10a432_userdvd.dmg restored to a USB flash drive with Disk Utility. I do not have an external DVD drive to use.
You can't just "copy" or restore the image to the USB flash, you have to format and partition it first. See How to Create a Bootable USB Drive With OS X Snow Leopard for a good tutorial on how to do just that.
I thought it would be useful to put the Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard installer on a USB flash drive. It would be faster than reading from a DVD. I can use it with a Macbook Air or Pro Retina which do not come with a DVD drive. And the USB flash drive is more portable and robust than a DVD.
Hi, my computer is stuck on a grey screen with the apple logo and a spinning wheel. so, i bought a new hard drive, a hdd cable and os x snow leopard ( since i didnt have any os x) . but when i try to to open the osx i just hear 3 beeps interval and nothing happen. how can i solve this problem thank you. could other things cause that problem besides bad ram. because i tried one of the rams on my windows computer and it did work
Louis, are you saying that the Pre-Installed MacOS: X 10.6.6 (10J3210) from the installation DVD will not work? I know nothing earlier will work. The retail 10.6 will not work because it is 10.6.3. I have never heard of getting 3 beeps from trying to install anything. Outside of the original DVD for this machine, the only way I know of (outside of cloning in Target Mode or a Target Mode installation) is to build a flash drive install of 10.6.6 or better. Will this machine connect via the internet by holding down the "R' key on start up and download a system?
If you want to burn Lion to a USB flash drive, plug it in and click on it in the left-hand sidebar in Disk Utility. Go to the Partition tab and select "1 Partition" from the dropdown menu. Choose "Mac OS Extended (Journaled) on the left.
For my own case, installed TransMac on my Windows 10 laptop but it failed to work when I am trying to burn a dmg file (macOS Big Sur) to an external USB flash drive. It says the dmg file could not be restored to a Mac volume.
The applications affected are numerous and varied. Signature apps such as Parallels Desktop are on the blacklist, alongside Adobe Creative Suite 3 -- an app used by millions of creative types (including those at CNET Towers) to edit pictures in Photoshop, or create flashy Web content in, er, Flash. In addition, Snow Leopard automatically installs Java SE 6, so programs that require previous versions (which were present in Leopard and Tiger) may not run properly off the bat. The new OS even downgrades your version of Flash without permission, rolling back to an older version (10.0.23.1) that's full of potential security holes.
My DVD-RW just died and I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed on my pc. Soon my new HDD will be delivered and I want to install Snow Leopard 10.7 (iAtkos). I have a 8GB Kingstone flash drive but I don't know how to set it up so I can install Mac from it. I have the .iso image downloaded. On the internet I can only find how to do it from Mac but I don't have Mac installed.
I recommend you use MODCD to install an retail version of snow leopard on your pc then use macosx to install the iaktos image unless you want to get involved with dmg2img hfsplus programs and chameleon packages.
Creating a GPT partition to build a Mac OS X bootable drive on Windows 10After you complete the steps, the USB flash drive from MBR to GPT format, you can use the steps below to create a bootable USB installation media to install Mac OS X.
#6 is related to the version of flash that ships with SL. If you have websites with embedded flash running in the background (pandora, etc) the cursor will change when you click in Photoshop. It should go away when you update your flash player.
That's not the big issue however. The results on the previous page showed something troubling. The MacBook Pro is only able to deliver between 3.7 - 4.4 hours of battery life while browsing web pages with flash ads on them. Looking back at my 15-inch MBP results under Leopard, we see a problem:

I wonder how much OpenCL helps in video playback especially on new MBPs with Nvidia 9400 M graphics. Has anyone tested how much one can reduce the CPU usage while watching videos on sites like CNN and Youtube? I am interested in knowing if the Adobe flash player eating of CPU is somehow reduced because of the OpenCL support in SL. Unfortunately I can't do this as my MB is not equipped with Nvidia GPU. If someone has noticed some improvement, please let me know

I am interested in knowing if the Adobe flash player eating of CPU is somehow reduced because of the OpenCL support in SL. Unfortunately I can't do this as my MB is not equipped with Nvidia GPU. If someone has noticed some improvement, please let me knowFirst of all let me say I don't really care about 9400M's performance. The GPU is weak and I believe Apple puts way too much attention on it. Yes it replaces a GPU that is several folds weaker but still if you want real computing power you would be looking at dedicated GPUs with dedicated high speed VRAM. Anyway here are answers to some of your questions. OpenCL does not make flash any faster since there isn't a single OpenCL instruction in Flash. I would even go so far as to say that GPU acceleration in the Mac version of Flash is only present in the configuration GUI but that's not what Adobe's been saying ... Anyway to me the CPU usage is more than a proof. With plugins such as ClickToFlash you can however see how much better things can be. I have a 2.4 GHz early 2008 MBP ( 8600gt 256mb ). The flash version of YouTube videos use about 50-60% of one of the cores and that's on a good day. At the same time the h.264 version (using the opengl version of QT ) uses about 15-16%. Not that I feel either one of them ( in any other way than fan noise ) but the lower CPU usage results in longer battery life.
Thanks for your reply. I actually meant any GPU from Nvidia not just 9400M. If I understood correctly you do observe less CPU load with OpenGL version of QT. Btw what OpenGl version of QT? Itried click2flash and it is very good but unfortunately it doesn't work with CNN site. Do you recommend other plugin etc. to reduce the CPU usage while watching flash movies? Yeah flash really sucks the battery life.
New to Windows? No problem... here's a beginner's video tutorial that will teach you how to install Windows 7 Visa with a USB flash drive. See how to take the Windows ISO and put it on a USB flash drive for fast and easy installation.
Next we want to prepare our flash drive. The Windows 7 ISO is about 2.5GB, so you will need a flash drive at least 4GB in size. Once you have your flash drive, plug it into your computer and also make sure you remember the drive number. Now open up command prompt and type: diskpart
