When i boot into my backup on my firewiredisk - i have to login as user and with password. But my normal installation runs into the desktop - without password. And my username and password was not accepted on the bootdisk :eek:

OK, Morten. We've seen this with a corrupted Netinfo database. Could you send the system log from the backup to Support?

To get it, you need to use the "Go To Folder" command, and navigate to:

/Volumes/your-backup-volume/private/var/log

You'll find the system log in there. Send that to me as an attachment to a support message.

Thanks.

I understand the part

To get it, you need to use the "Go To Folder" command, and navigate to:


But not the ----

/Volumes/your-backup-volume/private/var/log

Because i have no privat folder ( or can not see one )

:eek:

My tiger disk is called Macintosh HD and the backup disk is OSX backup
Is it under volumes/osx backup/......
