I guess I'm a bit confused and am not sure I understand your last reply...

From my experience (and all of the research I've done), Disk Utility will not allow creation of a disk image created from the active volume. i.e. if I do a normal boot into my "Macintosh HD", then I can't create an image of this volume with Disk Utility - I've tried and receive an error message and have since found out I must either create the image via boot from another volume or from original install DVD.

Now once I have that original disk image created I can do things with it with SD!, but until I create that initial disk image file (which requires reboot from another volume) I can't move forward. Maybe I'm missing some obvious option?

Thanks,

-Bob
