So many of you are wondering how you can mount a DMG (disk image) clone which will allow you to use migration assistant to pull data from it. Here I'll show you the easiest and best way to do this.
As of Mavericks (10.9 and the current OSs) Apple did something stupid, they removed DMG support for migration assistant. Actually they didnt remove support, they changed the way migration assistant logged out of the current user, which in turn unmounted all DMGs. Major bummer for the tech savvy people out there. So then came a way to use the sudo command in the terminal to mount the DMG as the root user, thus keeping it mounted even after the logout. BUT, if you've ever tried to mount a large DMG, the OS will run a checksum (verification) which can take FOREVER (hours even).
Why is this awesome? Because the option "-noverify" skips the OS verification and the DMG mounts instantly.
