    I have made an ISO image from my Snow Leopard Install DVD. Here is what shows up in terminal with it mounted (diskutil list):

    Code:
    /dev/disk2
       #:               TYPE NAME                    SIZE          IDENTIFIER
       0:     Apple_partition_scheme              *8.1 GB     disk2
       1:     Apple_partition_map                   30.7 KB     disk2s1
       2:     Apple_Driver_ATAPI                    827.5 MB   disk2s2
       3:     Apple_HFS Mac OS X Install DVD   7.3 GB      disk2s3
    Obviously, disk2s2 is the Boot Camp partition of the ISO.

    What Unix commands would I use to delete the 827.5MB partition, and resize the 7.3GB partition to its full 8.1GB? I have done hours of searching, but haven't found any info on how to do this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re-create the image by using "Image from folder" (with a mounted volume) rather than "Image from device". My guess is you actually want to make this a read-write image from the bat. Set the size to be what you want.

    What is your goal? In some cases it is as easy as mounting with a shadow file, in other cases you just need to use 'hdiutil convert'. There are a number of techniques.

    Thanks so much! Simply making a new image from the mounted volume deletes the bootcamp partition, and automatically reduces the size of the image.
