dv54 mini on a mac .yes it works!

Postby G6DLJ » Sun Jan 31, 2016 9:29 pm

As I’m usually the one asking the questions I thought I’d answer one in advance for a change

I’ve just got the DV4mini running on a Mac using Virtual box.

So long as you use the latest version of Virtual box (mine is Version 5.0.14 r105127 ), have previously loaded Virtual Box “Guest Editions” and select the DVMini is the USB devices box you should be good to go under El Captain (10.11.3)

I already had SIP disabled for a different reason, but SIP is enabled by default so if it doesn’t work try disabling it, easy to Google.

do you mind me asking how do you get the .dmg into a bootable iso? Ive tried using DMG converter and it says "fatal: no bootable medium found"

thanks

I'm trying to get the Ubuntu .dmg to run on Linux and I can't get it working. I've followed the normal steps . Any chance you could help me with this?


Thanks
