Cloned Drive Missing Kext Files

I needed a bigger hard drive for my iMac G5 so I cloned the existing internal drive onto a new Seagate 500GB. Thinking I had a perfect clone I then replaced the internal drive with the new Seagate drive. It boots up okay but several messages are displayed that some system extension .kext files are missing. Included in these are IOUSB.kext, unsupported.kext, and several others. Now my external drives are not recognized and won't mount. I think I'm going to put the original drive back in for now. Question is why didn't the .kext files get installed on the new drive?

Thanks,
Andy

That doesn't make a lot of sense; it sounds like the initial copy failed, or the drive was damaged in a way that caused them not to be listed, since we do not skip those kexts.

That's what I thought. When I get time I'm going to clone the original drive to the new one again and see if I get the same issue.

Make sure the kexts are actually on the source, too: the kextcache might actually 'mask' the underlying problem.

I did another clone to the 500 GB drive and all the kext files were there. I was able to swap it into the iMac and it works great. I guess the first clone must not have completed successfully. All is well now.
