A bootable USB is a flash drive that contains an operating system that you can use to boot your computer from. It is useful for installing or repairing your system, or for testing it before making any changes to your hard drive. In this article, we will show you how to create a bootable USB for Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on Intel PCs using a simple and easy method.


The process involves four main steps:


  • Purchase and download Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store



  • Format and prepare the USB drive using Disk Utility



  • Install and run UniBeast on the USB drive



  • Boot from the USB drive and install Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on your PC



Before we begin, let's go over what you need for this project.


What You Need




To create a bootable USB for Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on Intel PCs, you will need:


  • A functional computer running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later (this is required to download the OS X installer from the Mac App Store)



  • An Apple ID (this is required to purchase and download Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store)



  • A USB flash drive with at least 8 GB of storage space (this will be used to create the bootable USB)



  • A PC with an Intel processor that is compatible with Mac OS X (you can check this list of compatible hardware)



  • A blank hard drive or a backup of your existing data (this will be used to install Mac OS X)



  • Access to the internet (this is required to download UniBeast and MultiBeast)



Once you have gathered all these items, you are ready to start creating your bootable USB.


Step 1: Purchase and Download Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store




The first step is to buy and download the OS X installer from the Mac App Store using an Apple ID on any Mac or functional computer running OS X 10.6.6 or later.


Here's how:


  • On your Mac, go to the App Store download page for OS X Lion (10.7).



  • OS X Lion costs $19.99.



  • Select Add to Bag and then complete your purchase.



  • Apple emails a redemption code for the Mac App Store, usually within a day.



  • When you receive the email and code, you download OS X Lion to your Mac from the App Store.



Once you have downloaded the OS X installer, you will find it in your Applications folder as Install Mac OS X Mountain Lion.app.


Step 2: Format and Prepare the USB Drive Using Disk Utility




The next step is to use Disk Utility to format and prepare the USB drive for the OS X installer.


Here's how:


Format the USB Drive as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with Master Boot Record Partition Scheme




This will ensure that the USB drive is compatible with both BIOS and UEFI systems.


  • Insert the USB flash drive into your Mac's USB port.



  • From Applications/Utilities, launch Disk Utility.



  • In the Disk Utility window, select your USB drive in the list of attached devices.



  • Select the Partition tab.



  • Use the Volume Scheme drop-down window to select 1 Partition.



  • Enter a name for the volume you're about to create, for example, USB.



  • Make sure the Format drop-down menu is set to Mac OS Extended (Journaled).



  • Select the Options button, choose Master Boot Record as the Partition Table type, and then select OK.



  • Select Apply. Disk Utility will ask if you're sure you want to partition your USB flash drive. Select Partition to continue.



  • Disk Utility will format and partition the USB flash drive. When it's finished, select Quit Disk Utility.



Restore the OS X Installer Image to the USB Drive




This will copy the OS X installer image (which is a DMG file) to the USB drive and make it bootable.


  • In Finder, go to your Applications folder and find the Install Mac OS X Mountain Lion.app file.



  • Right-click on the file and select Show Package Contents.



  • Navigate to Contents/SharedSupport and find the file called InstallESD.dmg. This is the OS X installer image.



  • From Applications/Utilities, launch Disk Utility again.



  • In the Disk Utility window, select your USB drive in the list of attached devices.



  • Select the Restore tab.



  • Drag and drop the InstallESD.dmg file from Finder to the Source field in Disk Utility.



  • Drag and drop your USB volume (the one you named earlier) from Finder to the Destination field in Disk Utility.



  • Select Erase Destination. This will erase any existing data on your USB volume.



  • Select Restore. Disk Utility will ask if you're sure you want to restore your USB volume from InstallESD.dmg. Select Restore to continue.



  • Disk Utility will copy the OS X installer image to your USB volume and make it bootable. This may take some time, depending on your system and drive speed. When it's finished, select Quit Disk Utility.



Your USB drive is now ready for UniBeast.


Step 3: Install and Run UniBeast on the USB Drive




The third step is to download and run UniBeast, a tool that will install the bootloader and drivers on your USB drive, making it compatible with Intel-based PCs.


Here's how:


  • On your Mac, go to the UniBeast download page. You will need to register an account on tonymacx86.com to access this page.



  • Select Download Now and save the UniBeast zip file on your Mac.



  • Extract the zip file and run UniBeast.app from Finder.



  • Select Continue, Continue, Continue, Agree on the UniBeast welcome screen and license agreement.



  • At Destination Select, choose your USB drive (the one you named earlier) and select Continue.



  • Choose Mac App Store Mountain Lion - 10.8 as your installation type and select Continue.



  • (Optional) If using a Socket 1156 system without Rate Matching Hub (RMH) USB choose Legacy USB Support. This will enable USB 2.0 support for older systems. Select Continue.



  • (Optional) If using a laptop, choose Laptop Support. This will enable battery status and trackpad support for laptops. Select Continue.



  • Select Continue again. Enter your password and select Install when prompted by UniBeast.
