    Can someone try this out on their machine please and let me know if it doesn't work for them either.

    Steps to reproduce
    • Open Disk Utility
    • Drag an ISO image into the left sidebar
    • Insert an USB Stick with enough space to contain the image
    • Go to any restore tab in Disk Utility
    • Drag the ISO file to the source
    • Drag the Volume from the USB drive to the destination
    • Check erase destination
    • Hit restore

    Results for me are (in any number of varieties to do this) either "Invalid argument" or in the log "Could not validate source - error 254".

    This worked fine in Mac OS 10.6.4.

    I have actually found out that this bug has been around for many people for a while. Seems the last version of Mac OS that reliably supported this was 10.5.x...
