Essentially what I want to do is create an image of a filesystem then write that filesystem to a flash drive. Currently I am trying to create an hfs filesystem in the form of a file on an ext3 filesystem. I am then using dd if=image of=/dev/sdb1. I then plug the drive into my mac and it tells me that it cannot repair the partition.
How can I accomplish this? I believe it has something to do with partition information not being on the drive but I am not sure?
