Hi,

Been using SD for three years now, living without it is not an option, saved my bacon twice now.

I have a new iMac with Leopard OS, I want an exact copy of the computer on my old iBook which has Tiger OS. Using the Setup Assistant and migrating from the iMac to the iBook is not an option. I have a refurbished iMac with Leopard, it ships with upgrade OS disks and not the normal retail discs. So, the disks do not work on my iBook as the normal retail disk is needed.

Can I use SuperDuper to duplicate my iMac on my iBook? It needs to be perfect, after the process I hit the iBook start button and it starts up just like my iMac does. Now I have Leopard on my iBook.....possible and if so how?

Cheers, HunterKK

Can't do it, HunterKK: your iBook is a Power PC Mac, and your iMac is an Intel Mac...

I thought as much. I will get the proper Leopard DVD from my sis, she has the full version. Thanks for the direction.

Cheers.
