    I use VMWare. I hate windows like no other, but I use it for BB OS updates and a few other programs...

    There has to be a way to create a .dmg for our Macs.

    can we extract the files from a .exe file? There's a shareware app on the Apple Website called dmg master, and I'm wondering if we could try and create a .dmg.

    It's probably more complex than that? I guess I could give it a go after work tomorrow.

    I would agree with the other posters, bootcamp is your best bet for now.

    I am sure there is a way to convert the files to .dmg after ripping them from .exe - First off that is a BIG pain!

    Secondly I do not believe Mac DM is even capable of installing an OS. If you get in the files i do not think that there is an installer.

    I'm sure it is a big pain, but there IS a way. I was reading on another forum where one chap had managed successfully to create a working .dmg for us, and was able to get the OS on to his phone.

    He admitted it was a very long winded process, and took forever.

    If we could find out what way he did this, then at least it would give us a head start in trying to find an easier way for us to achieve this goal.

    In theory, it should be possible to update using DM for Mac, as the .dmg will place the files into the relevant folders, that is something else we would have to figure out....

    Any good programmers mac/pc out there fancy a challenge
