Hey all...new to here and new to SD!, but I'm liking what I see so far (on both
Here's the deal...I backed up a friend's year-old 15" PowerBook (running Tiger 10.4.3) using a new LaCie 250 gig HD (partitioned into two drives--Backup1 & Backup2). Everything went fine with the initial full backup (no errors) with one exception, I can't boot successfully from it. It gets to the Mac OS X opening dialog with the status bar and then it just goes to a blue screen with a working cursor--and that's it.
I thought that maybe since the drive was still being accessed that it was reconfiguring to deal with the external drive, but it just sat there for 15 mins! I had to leave so I won't be going back until tomorrow, but after I left I realized that I had done the backup using FW800. I then booted off of FW800...could that be the culprit? If I just booted off of the FW400 side would that fix everything?
