    I just need to know after I create a disk image to install a program, and the installation requires a restart how I can install the program without the disk image going away after the restart. I hope this makes sense. Thanks!

    I somehow don't understand. The restart is required after the installation, isn't it? Then you wouldn't need the disk image anymore. Or do you have to boot from this image?

    I have to boot up with the image. Any tips? I already tried to select it as my startup disk and it still didn't work.

    I don't think you can boot from a disk image, you'd have to burn it to disc. But I'm also interested in what you are trying to use.

    There is no way to boot from a disk image, they require a running operating system to mount them.

    That said, if you just use Disk Utility to burn the image to a CD or DVD, you will be able to boot from it.
