Hi there,

I just copied my system drive to a new drive and I am unable to boot from it. I formatted the drive MacOS Journalized. What else do I need to check? The system drive is 10.5 for a dual G5 tower.

When booting I get a blinking folder icon with a question mark in it.

Any clues?

Cheers,
Noah

Did you properly partition the drive (see Help > Frequently Asked Questions, top question)? What kind of drive is it, and how is it connected?
