CCC failed, will SuperDuper be able to copy USB---->SATA300 then boot it?
 
So I tried copying my bootable USB external drive to a brand new SATA 300 drive. I partitioned it with 2 partitions, the first one MAC Journaled, the second one MSDOS. I used CCC to clone the USB disk to the Mac journaled partition.

It said the copy completed sucessfully, however when I reboot the machine, all I get is a blinking cursor upper left hand corner.

Will superduper be able to copy this successfully and boot off of the copy?

Do I have to do anything special when I'm preparing the target disk besides format it Mac Journaled?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming this is an Intel Mac. You'll have to make sure you partition it as GUID -- use the partition tab of Disk Utility, set the number of partitions and click Options, then select GUID as the partition type. Repartition, then copy -- it should work.

This is an intel mac, (hackintosh). I didn't even see that option, but doesn't it default to that option when it erases and partitions? I definitely didn't change
it from the default whatever that is.

This is 10.5.6 by the way.

If this is a hackintosh, I really can't promise it's going to be bootable. As I recall, hackintoshes require a boot sector to be written, and I really don't know what partition scheme they require...
