Disappointed. Cannot Boot from WD MyBook new drive under Tiger

Bought a brand new Western Digital My Book 320GB drive with triple interface USB2, FW400, eSATA. Partition drive to (1) 250GB and (2) 50GB reminder under Apple Partition Map. Format drive to Mac OS Extended Journaled.

My Imac is a G5 PowerPC 2GHz with 120GB running latest Mac OS X 10.4.11 (not Leopard). I connected the drive using the FW400 connection.

I installed SuperDuper and ran the full bootable back up which ran fine. Completed in a over an hour. All Ok up to this point.

Then I restarted and held down the Option key. Then the boot screen came up but only show the Macintosh HD icon. I press the "refresh" button but the MyBook would not show up for me to boot into.

The WD My Book is the latest retail version with the "vertical line" indicator light, not the "Circle" one.

Can someone tell me what is wrong? I really like the drive, quiet, etc.
