iPod disk image...

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Hello all.

I do a little work at a retailer. They have a few macs setup and I would like to be able to make a disk image of OS X on an iPod that I can just bring into the store and "restore" all of the computers using this image.

What's the process or does anyone have a link to somewhere that shows how to do it?

    People 'round here say that the disk in the iPod is not made for that amount of continuous reading and writing. Why not just get a firewire drive.

    I do this at work, where I run about 30 Macs.

    I have about 4 OSX system images on the iPod, for various uses - DTP etc.

    If ever I get a new Mac or one goes wrong, I just restore an image and 5 minutes later the Macs up and running.

    I also keep a disk images of all our software, Quark, Adobe CS, Suitcase etc, so I can install without digging out CD's.

    The 'pod works fine, as well as playing music.
