    I tried creating a boot disk with Coriolis and this message came up: "Failed to create template. Coriolis CDMaker failed to create a template from that installation media. Try again or use an alternative source. If the problem persists, report a bug providing a copy of the console log." I put my Mac OS X Install Disk 1 inside as it asked for, is it something wrong on my part?

    Hey had This problem too found this

    1. Using Disk Utility in the Utilities folder create a new image of the Mac OS X Install DVD. Change the Image format option from "compressed" to "read/write". Create the disk image.
    2. Mount the OS X install DVD disk image.
    3. Trash the folder "Optional Installs" - whatever is in this folder prevents CDMaker from creating a boot disk template.
    3. Open CDMaker and it will detect the mounted OS X install DVD disk image and create boot disk template from the startup data in the disk image.
    4. Follow the instructions and burn your boot disk to DVD.
    5. Boot computer from DVD to test.


    Haven't tried it yet but it looks promising

    good luck
