DiskMaker X is an application programmed with AppleScript that you can use from Mac OS  10.6 up  to OS X 10.9 to build a bootable drive from Mac OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion Installation program. As soon as you launch the application, it tries to find the OS X Install program with Spotlight. Then, it proposes to build a DVD or create a bootable install disk.

To build a bootable disk, you’ll need an 8 GB (minimum) USB thumb key drive, a USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt drive or an SD-Card.

WARNING! DiskMaker X will erase the volume or the drive you chose, according to the options you chose. Don’t forget to backup your data first!
