|Tips on burning a Disc with Multiple Apple Hardware Test Images|
|Follow-up to yesterday's post on an Apple page with Apple Hardware Test CD images (downloads) for some models of Powerbooks, iBooks, iMacs/eMacs, G4 Towers and Xserve (PPC):
Hi Mike... As a follow up to the link of amin (aht):
Over the past 3 years I bought every hardware test cd from ebay I could get. Often mactracer gave me the help I needed to specify which machine it was for.
As I did not want to carry one disc for each model with me, after some test I figured out, you can burn a multi-aht-disc.
With the link from yesterday, you just need to burn each of the images to one multi-session-cd!! e.g.
- Open Toast
- Select 'Burn Image'
- Drag one of the .dmg in the Toast window
- Be sure to choose 'multisession' in the advanced burning prefs
- Repeat with the next .dmg...
After the last .dmg you should have a bootable disc, ready to use with all the old models the ahts are for.
If anyone knows the technique to extract the AHT of newer ppc's MacOSX installer discs, please send it in for posting, so we can expand the multiboot aht-disc with younger (PM G5...) models.
If anyone has done this let me know. Thanks. (Reminds me I need to find my 2003 G5 tower Disc...)
