    I'm sort of new at this, so I was wondering how I can get "Mac OS X Install DVD" as the source for "Final". I am following a tutorial online on compiling a single layer DVD from my install disc by removing drivers for printers and language support. I can easily locate "dump.sparseimage" to set as a source, but not "Mac OS X Install DVD".

    I am on Lion.

    Thanks.

    Tried dragging the little icon next to Mac OS X Install to the source input box?

    Click Mac OS X Install, go to the restore tab, and it should be selected as Source now.

    Convert the sparseimage to a read-only dmg. Then choose "Scan Image for Restore..." from the "Images" menu in Disk Utility. Do not mount the disk image (it is not necessary). Drag the read-only & scanned dmg in the source field.
