View Full Version : Can't boot from clone

08-13-2008, 01:10 AM
Hi Dave, I did search a bit but could not find anything.
I just cloned my new MAC PRO boot disk onto another internal HD partion w/ extended format (journaled).
I can't boot from the clone partition, and also my DAW app is requesting authentication (which I did) on the main boot partition..

I realize the MAC pro's should be partitined as GUID, I think I did that right.

Are you sure it didn't start up from the backup? Check "About this Mac", not disk position...

Doh!! It did boot on the clone. I need to get used to Leo conventions.
Now it makes sense that I had to reautho my DAW app. Boy do I feel like an idiot:o

Although it did take a while to boot, as though it couldn't and was redirected back to the main drive.

Your first boot or two is going to be slower because the 'hotfiles cache' is going to be recreated.

Anyway, glad it actually did work. :)

I didn't have any doubts.. never had a problem w/ SD before.
Just Leo fooled me. Time Machine ? ha
