I use a Mac and the Disk Utility is not being reasonable, so I'm wondering if there is a simple, free program out there to accomplish this task?
All advice will be greatly appreciated.
Just guessing but are you trying write the .iso you downloaded from the iot site onto an SD card?
If so, it doesn't work that way. That .iso contains among other things Flash.ffu, installation tools for the .ffu, and the SDK.
The .ffu is what you want to write to the SD card. This is not just a straight forward .img. It is specialized format that a number of embedded manufacturers use to flash their devices.
There is a Python script floating around that will do that conversion for you.
Saying all of that, the "easiest" way is to use your mac and spool up a vm of Windows 10 and just install the .iso there.
You will need Visual Studio running somewhere as well. Ok, I guess if you are writing node or some such, but why limit yourself.
