I created a bootable copy of my system (yes, as instructed), but my Macbook Pro won't boot from it. I saw another post from someone saying they were good with G-Tech, so now I'm thoroughly confused. I'm using the G-Drive Mini Triple (recently released to include firewire 800 in addition to 400 and USB). Does anyone have any knowledge about this issue???

Are you sure the G-Tech/G-Drive was properly partitioned as "GUID" for your MacBook Pro?

GUID? Pardon my ignorance, but Mac OS Extended (journaled) is how I partitioned it. Not right?

When I purchased the software a couple of weeks ago, I could swear the download page said it WAS Leopard compatible. Now everything I'm reading says that it is NOT. Sounds like that's my problem, yes?

Ah, you didn't say you were using Leopard. If you're getting to the "apple screen" with a spinning pinwheel, yes, that's the issue. The Leopard version should be out within a week or so.

That's my problem, thank you.
