大型应用程序,安装在Mac OS X使用磁盘映像
Mike Watkinson on Thu, January 19th 7 comments
Do you dread installing large applications that span multiple discs? (Yes, Logic Studio, I'm looking at you!) Mike Watkinson explains how to dramatically transform those hours into minutes.

一段时间以来的最大installationstypically多GB的音乐应用librariesinvolve烦人大量的DVD光盘插入。当这只是一个或两个,它没有那么麻烦,但Logic Studio的有八个,Native Instruments公司Komplete 7 12个!光盘也是一个相对缓慢的格式提供数据,但真正炉排的是需要参加的安装,整个过程中依次插入光盘坐在那里。幸运的是加快安装过程中,这消除了需要插入每个磁盘上的需求的替代方法。


第1步 - 创建磁盘映像

磁盘映像被定义为“包含完整的内容和结构数据的存储介质或设备的单一文件”(谢谢你,维基!),这种方法涉及的每个物理磁盘创建磁盘映像和存储外部硬盘驱动器上的形象。现在相对便宜的硬盘空间,为什么不创建一个外部驱动器上的分区,使用它存储大量的安装程序和磁盘映像?

  • Insert the first installation disk
  • Select it in Disk Utility – make sure you select the actual disk and not the optical drive
  • Click New Image in the toolbar

Creating a Disk Image

创建磁盘映像


选择你是要创建和改变图像格式为只读磁盘映像的目标;应留给加密设置为none。

Save the disk image as ‘read only’ and unencrypted

保存为只读和未加密的磁盘映像


安装所需的所有剩余磁盘重复上述过程。


第2步 - 安装磁盘映像

下一次你需要安装的软件,您将需要执行以下步骤:

  • Attach the hard drive where the disk images are stored to your Mac.
  • Open each disk image by double-clicking it. Each time you do this the image will request verification, which can be very time-consuming (and we are in the business of saving time!) so it’s good to know you can skip this step by clicking ‘Skip’.

Skip the verification process to save time

跳过验证过程,以节省时间


一旦被安装的磁盘图像,单击双击该系列的第一,像往常一样进行安装过程。

Every installer disk mounted and ready to go

每一个安装盘装和整装待发


接下来会发生什么是保存您宝贵的时间!每次安装过程中需要下一个磁盘,它会自动找到它,因为它已经安装在您的系统。这意味着,首先,你可以离开整个过程无人看管。其次,作为数据传输比从光盘驱动器的硬盘驱动器快很多,这个过程是快多了。

一个Komplete最近的安装,使用这种方法艾美加火线800外置硬盘驱动器,只花了29分钟(通过DVD通常为三个小时)。和所有的最佳位?在这段时间里,我没有更多的东西比坐等插入安装光盘!

    NIce handy tip Mike. Definitely a time saver. And all your Installers can also reside on one external drive. So you don't have to search through all your discs for your installers if something drastic happens to your Mac.

    No mention of the time spent making the disk images in the first place. This part of the process is not unattended, so should be included as part of the installation. Out of interest - did you time this as well?

    Hi Berra, It's been a long time since I created a disc image of Logic Studio - but when I did I timed the standard install at just under 4 hours on my then studio Mac. Later when creating a disc image and installing from it the entire process took me well under 2 hours I believe... perhaps a lot less.

    Thanks for the info. Yes, that's a big difference. And if you need to reinstall later or move to a different machine you can really pat yourself on the back. Regards, Bertil

    I use the Disc image a lot for a verity of things, like keeping a tutorial I have or using it for movies etc. but this was a good idea that I have now decided to follow for my next upgrade such as Superior Drummer which has giant libraries for expansion and usually come in 8 discs etc. Flat out, GREAT tip man. You are the Man!
