Creating a bootable USB stick from an iso file on Mac OSX

I wanted to load ReactOS on an old laptop of mine.

Steps followed to create the bootable USB stick

hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o /Users/santoshsrinivas/Downloads/ReactOS-0.4.0.img /Users/santoshsrinivas/Downloads/ReactOS-0.4.0.iso

#diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2

sudo dd if=/Users/santoshsrinivas/Downloads/ReactOS-0.4.0.img.dmg of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m

#diskutil eject /dev/diskN
diskutil eject /dev/disk2
