How To: Burn activate.iso on Mac OS X
At the request of one of my readers, I am making a short tutorial on how to burn activate.iso on Mac OS X. This is a fairly simple process, however I will cover it in as much detail as possible.
The activate.iso file ( Download )
Disk Utility ( Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility )
A Blank Dual Layer DVD
Download the activate.iso file from the above list of tools. Once downloaded, you need to extract it, since it will be in a compressed zip format.
Open Disk Utility ( Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility ) – you should see a screen similar to the below
Click on Burn, you will see a browse window similar to the image below, browse to the location where you downloaded and extracted the activate.iso file. Highlight activate.iso, then click on Burn.
After clicking on Burn, the browse dialog will disappear and you will see a new window, similar to the following image. At this point you will need to insert your disk. When Disk Utility recognizes that a blank dual layer disk has been inserted, it will enable the Burn button. All you need to do now is click Burn.
After the burn has completed you will most likely need to reboot your Mac to remove the disk since for me anyway OS X did not recognize that there was a disk in the drive after the burn completed and therefore did not let me eject the disk while I was in the operating system. So what you need to do is reboot your Mac and eject the disk using the eject button before your Mac boots back up completely.
So that’s it for the tutorial, nothing special, just use good old Disk Utility to burn and you’re all set.
