Create an .ISO from Apple Disk Utility on Mac

On July 21, 2010, in Technology, by Mike Waldron

From this post from robbieduncan at macrumors:

  1. Open Disk Utility and use the New Image from Folder menu item to create an image. Ensure it is uncompressed and use the CD/DVD master option.In my experience this creates HFS+ masters which are no good in Windows.
  2. Open the Terminal
  3. Assuming your new image is called ~/Desktop/Master.cdr (the file is on your desktop and called Master.cdr) type:
cd ~/Desktop
hdiutil makehybrid -iso -joliet -o Master.iso Master.cdr

This will create an ISO/Joliet .iso file.
