Convert .iso to .img and make bootable USB

Note so I don't have to Google this.

diskutil list

Find USB drive and unmount it, diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk1

Convert .iso to .img. This will put a .dmg extension on the .img file, but you can leave it like that and still make a bootable USB drive with it.

hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o xenserver61.img /Downloads/XenServer-6.1-install-cd.iso

Make bootable USB drive

dd if=xenserver61.img.dmg of=/dev/rdisk1 bs=1m
