Bootable EFI CDs on Intel Macs

Bootable EFI CDs on an Intel Mac are a bit different than a normal EFI CD. As such, they need special support.

What's needed

  • HFS+ support for blessing a file
  • make dumpet correctly interpet and display hybrid iso/apm CDs and HFS+ blessing
  • Ability to create image files for the icon and label to be used on the boot option screen
  • Ability to create CD that has el torito images as well as an Apple Partition Map which specifies the HFS+ image as a partition.
  • icon/label images included in *-logos
  • modification of mk-images to create the appropriate HFS+ image and add it to CD images.
