Lion DiskMaker reaches version 1.7b1. It is available here.
What’s new ?
- 4 GB USB drives again compatible with Lion 10.7.3. I had to regain space by not copying AdditionalSpeechVoices.pkg (which is NOT essential) if you choose to use a 4 GB USB thumb drive. Lion DiskMaker will propose to copy AdditionalSpeechVoices.pkg on the Desktop after creating the disk.
- Now you can use Lion DiskMaker to create a boot disk without reformating the WHOLE volume. Now, if you use a bigger-than-4-GB disk, only the volume selected to install Lion DiskMaker will be erased. The other volumes will be kept safe.
- If you use a more-than-4GB drive, the disk will be visible in the Startup control panel, with its real name… but the disk will need to use the GUID partition scheme.
- More langues : Lion DiskMaker is now translated in Italian and Chinese ! A german version should arrive soon.
Please note that Lion DiskMaker is NOT compatible with OS X Lion Developer Preview. This should come in another version.
Also, don’t forget that Lion DiskMaker is donationware, so if you like it, please donate !
