How to make a ISO out of a DMG file under OSX

Home / Apple / How to make a ISO out of a DMG file under OSX

Here is a quick command line for all you OSX ppl. If you’re ever in need of turning/converting a .dmg file into a .iso use the following command line:

hdiutil makehybrid -iso -o newfile.iso yourfilename.dmg

Where newfile is the name of the iso you want, and yourfilename.dmg is the dmg. Have Fun……

    please note that -iso will create the ISO with RockRidge file extensions which are only understand on Unix (and Mac?) systems. Some flavors of Windows won’t like it. If the ISO needs to work on Windows as well, try -joliet instead.
