I confess - I know nothing about Unetbootin, boot disks or anything that falls under networks, admin etc. I am getting help on bleepingcomputer from some very wonderful people - very kind and patient.
I was using kaspersky tssdkiller to scan my pc laptop, went to bed and woke up to find no bootable disk
We were going to use HIRENS on a DVD but in the BOOT menu there isn't a legacy option
so the very patient person helping suggested I try a different ISO file and Unetbootin.
I have to do all the set up on an iMac, but it is to retrieve the files on a win 8 acer laptop. The files are very important to me and while the laptop is under warranty, acer will just wipe or replace the drive without getting the files back.
I downloaded Unetbootin for mac.
I opened it, and chose disk image, not distribution
it took me a bit but I got it to navigate to the iso file
I have usb selected
But here is the problem... it won't allow me to select the target drive. It is set to /dev/disk1s1
Can anyone assist me in this? We are going to run fatdog if this drive can be set up properly.
I just need help with the selection of the correct target drive. The drop down doesn't offer any options beyond the one i listed
thank you for any help you can offer
