I did have similar problems with Hirens boot cd on an old hp laptop, luckily they propose an alternative Grub4Dos boot menu which worked for me.

Yes, I replied 4 days ago, but maybe you're refering to another email?

Yes, I can imagine keeping all those different tools looking at the same USB disk (instead of a CD) can be a challenge. Strangly enough my laptop works quite alright with it (FreeDOS and MiniXP).

Apart from that, I've submitted the CD-rom switching patch to CyanogenMods d2 kernel. You can find it here: http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/c/45105/
Once it is accepted, it'll allow the following devices to switch between CD-rom and USB:
Samsung Galaxy S III (AT&T)
Samsung Galaxy S III (Cricket)
Samsung Galaxy S III (Metro PCS)
Samsung Galaxy S III (Sprint)
Samsung Galaxy S III (T-Mobile)
Samsung Galaxy S III (US Cellular)
Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon)

CD-rom emulation should already be fixed on these devices, so I haven't applied the other patch.

I'm talking about email, not XDA's private messages They are replies to the support email you send through DriveDroid.

For anyone interested in installing Windows, UBCD, Hirens or whatever, I've found a new tool for Windows that works easy, fast and is opensource, called Rufus. I've written another tutorial on how to use it with DriveDroid (though it doesn't differ much from the other tutorials):

Since it has GPT support, Rufus could help macusers (official or hackintosh) too. I don't have an Apple rig anymore but it should work.

Last week, I was visiting a friend who own a 21.5" Intel iMac, I hopped it'd boot even on Hiren, no dice, needing place on my phone, I hadn't my Windows Seven disc image. Then, my GS4 LTE didn't even mount on the desktop, even back in MTP but we lacked time to investigate why.

I'll ask my friend's son to try later with my former GS3 I gave to him, leaving it with many links to XDA to deal with his new device. Since he's actually studying development, it can be helpful to everyone.

Since Mac OSX only supports UEFI booting, this might be of help. I switched to a new PC some months ago and wanted to use UEFI booting on it. My PC did not recognize most of the hybrid ISOs as UEFI-compatible disks. I needed to format the disk with MBR+FAT32 and copy all the files from the ISO to the FAT32 partition. GPT should've worked too, but MBR worked also fine.
I'm not entirely sure how different Mac OSX works in this regard. I tried a Macbook Pro a few days ago and the hybrid ISO of ArchLinux seemed to be recognized, other images that I tried were not recognized. I think the image of ArchLinux does not have a GPT layout (since it already has MBR *and* ISO format... I'm not sure how sane adding GPT on top of it is for them, seems like madness ). So, I think Mac OSX should also be able to recognize MBR with a FAT partition. Just be sure the FAT partition has a EFI directory in its root with an EFI file in it.

Anyway, I was working on the test-image of DriveDroid a few days ago and added EFI support (so that people using Mac OSX can also test whether their phone actually allows them to boot). I tried it in an emulator and that all seemed to work. My PC also seems to recognize the EFI stuff (it just seems to exit immediately when booting though). I'd like to know whether this image does actually work on Mac OSX machines. If you or anyone else can, it would be great this was tested on a actual Mac OSX machine. You can get the image here:
