So I formatted the USB thing to FAT, I tried using a 4GB and then figured maybe it's the disk so then I used a 2GB and got the same errors. Followed the instructions just as they are on the page...
I do the install command and I can see the lights start to go on my USB drive like it's being used... it continues for a few minutes and then I get this error pop up that says the "disk you inserted was not readable by this computer"
what's wrong here? I'm following all of these instructions properly and I've tried it several times each way. using osx 10.9.4 and trying to get a bootable USB so I can install ubuntu on another partition. I don't have a CD drive so I can't do that.
By the way, It says under step 3 in a Note: that OSX adds the .dmg to the file so it comes out like blabla.img.dmg after the conversion. Am I supposed to edit the name of the file and remove that .dmg at the end or keep it? It doesn't say what to do about it in the instructions.
