View Full Version : Full Restore from WinXT Server?

I am a Windows XT based household (5 WinXT boxes) that is migrating to Mac.

Using SuperDuper, I created a sparse image of my MacBook Pro (OS 10.5) on one of my WinXT NFTS computers. I am now trying to do a complete restore using Disk Utility loaded from the Leopard install DVD.

But the step in the "Recovering from a disaster" where I "open the image by choosing File > Open Image... in Disk Utility" does not show my WinXT server as an option.

Is there a way to mount the WinXT box when I have booted from the Leopard install DVD?

Not that I know of, no: you'll need to create a small, bootable OSX installation and mount your server from there (or use another Mac to restore to the Mac in FireWire target mode).
