Mac: Create Bootable USB Drive

Create a bootable USB drive from an ISO:
  1. Download the ISO to a known location
  2. Download the USB create utility and move to Applications:
  3. Get the disk device node:
    diskutil list
    e.g. /dev/disk3
  4. Run unetbootin and select the ISO and the disk
  5. Rename some resulting files:
    cd /Volumes/[USB Drive]
    cd boot/isolinux/
    mv isolinux.bin syslinux.bin
    mv isolinux.cfg syslinux.cfg
    cd ../
    mv isolinux syslinux
    cd ../
    mv syslinux.cfg syslinux.old
