Can't make a bootable USB with testdisk for imac OSX

#1 Post by ecret » 22 Jun 2014, 07:50

Hi
I have an iMac with only a usb drive. I can't seem to make a bootable disk with testtype on it so that I can get in and repair/fix a partition.
I tried ultimate boot disk and gnome partition tool. Nothing seems to boot.
Is there some bootable iso that I can load onto a usb and just get it to boot on my iMac so that I can use testdisk to fix my issue?
Thanks!!

Could you test Linux to boot from?
Here are some instruction, but I didn't test them:
