DD Problem

Hello - I'm very new to this so please excuse stupidity!

 

I am trying to turn my Dell Latitude D430 into a Hackintosh and trying to follow the steps under "Creating a USB pen with OSX installation - Method 2 - Using our premade image".

 

I have downloaded the image file, unzipped it, and have it in the root folder of my C drive.

 

I have also downloaded "DD" (version 0.6beta3), also sitting in the root folder of my C drive.

 

I have used "dd --list" to determine that my USB drive is "HarddiskVolume5"

 

I then run the command as follows:

 

"dd bs=1M if=sld430usb.img of=\\?\Device\HarddiskVolume5\Partion0 --progress"

 

and get the following response:

 

"Error native opening file: 0 The operation completed successfully"

 

I have checked that the filename matches properly.

 

Could anybody advise me what I am doing wrong?

 

Many thanks in advance!

I had also the same error, when I downloaded file via torrent. I did not use the //?/Device/etc as a destination, instead I used /.//i:, where I: was a ltter of the pendrive. I did that under Windows. I don't know if it is correct, but I was able to install system from the pendrive prepared this way.
