    You don't have access to a Mac to do this? What Linux distro do you have? Is there some cloning app (copying one volume to another volume 1:1) for Linux which works with HFS+? Can you format your USB flash memory thumb drive with HFS+ and GUID in Linux?

    Linux Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04)

    ----------

    that tells me how to put a image on a USB Drive with OS X using Terminal this is not what im looking for

    ----------

    only other mac i have access too is my Compaq HackBook but the DMG files are on an external drive and Mac OS X wont read NTFS even with NTFS-3G installed tells me it is a unclean volume even tho i properly remove the drive when i use it

    The procedure is exactly the same in Terminal from OS X, as it is from a Linux command prompt
