Has anyone else tried making a USB 10.9 Install drive yet?
LionDiskmaker would not work.
Will try TargetDiskMode to get it on my MBA soon.
There is a hidden file in installESD called Basesystem.dmg this is the boot image but not the install files, still trying to work out how they link together. But you can boot off of that image just not install.
Just like Mountain Lion, there is an alias for the Packages folder inside BastSystem.dmg. I think it is at /System/Library/Packages. You need to delete that alias and copy the Packages folder in InstallESD.dmg into its place.
EDIT: The alias is at /System/Installation/
No it simply said that it could not install on the partition, so I knew something was wrong. I then did a time machine back up and erased the drive restored and then updated, I do not know what the issue was.During the attempt, did it inform you of the issue or did you loose data?
