  • Check USB flash disk
diskutil list

And you will get information as follow:

  • Get the information of flash disk and unmount it.
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk4

Then we will get the information as follow:

Unmount of all volumes on disk4 was successful
  • Write ios file in USB flash disk
sudo dd if=~/Downloads/ubuntu-14.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/disk4 bs=4m

Wait for a while, the Startup Disk will be created.

Make MacOS Startup Disk

  • Launch diskutil. Format USB flash disk with OSX Extended, and named the disk, like Capitan.
  • Write the image to USB flash disk with command:
sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ 10.11\ Developer\ --volume /Volumes/Capitan --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ 10.11\ Developer\ --nointeraction

Notice: the USB flash name & OS image file maybe different.
