Please

Please try to add spaces after your periods... It's really rather annoying, especially when talking about extensions.

I'm reading it and I thing what's a that.how? Oh... Thats a period... Now what's an errors.so? oh... etc. etc. etc.

Anyways, I don't have an answer. It just might make people a little more happy to help if they don't get confused when reading your question.... I think... Smile

The only way I can think of

The only way I can think of is to burn it on a CD with IMGburn:

Find a virtual drive program

Find a virtual drive program like DAEMON Tools to mount it.

Quite simple actually

You can open it as though it is a ZIP or RAR file with the use of ExtractNow (http://www.extractnow.com/), a free program that can be downloaded at the bottom of that website. I've used it before and it works really well.

if you find the end of one of the mac on stick threads, then you will find one of my idiot posts right after the fully compiled .zip file download.

Worst post ever

Renaming the file extension doesn't modify the file itself or magically make it a Zip or RAR file.

Quit posting totally worthless info because someone new to this website may actually believe you have a clue and know what you're talking about...to their detriment.

Worst post ever.

Mac On Stick Tutorial

I just used the "Mac On A Stick" tutorial located HERE.

It was much easier to follow for me and the System_7.0.1.smi.bin files were already available unpacked.:)
