ASR DMG Restore

Hi,

I have been using SuperDuper! for a bit and it works perfectly on my systems to backup/restore when using the image on the original computer. I am having a problem however trying to restore to another computer. I have a DP2.5 G5 and am trying to create a generic "image" to restore other Macs as needed. I have taken an external harddrive, partitioned it, and loaded OS X 10.3.7 onto one partition.

I then use SuperDuper! to clone the newly created 10.3.7 HD to 10.3.7 HD Clone. This works perfectly and does create a bootable clone. As one of the options I choose to create a .dmg that is supposed to be ASR compliant.

I want to take this .dmg and image the harddrive on a Mac mini. The restore fails every time... I can however boot off the 10.3.7 HD/HD Clone partition and all runs fine.

Could this be that the Mac mini is unable to use a .dmg created on a G5 or am I missing some obvious step?

Please let me know, Thanks.

An image created with the "Image" checkbox in "Options..." is actually a device-specific ASR image, and won't be portable to any hard drives other than one configured just like the original.

If you want to be able to use a DMG on the Mini, you should create it "directly" by saving to a DMG in the "destination" (2nd) pop-up. That should be portable.

Note, though, that you'll likely need 10.3.8 for your mini: I don't believe 10.3.7, as sent to a G5, is a late enough build (check the build # on the mini), even though the version "number" is the same. I believe 10.3.8 should work, though.

Hi again,

All of my mini's shipped with 10.3.6, but I will try the 2nd option and see if that works.

Thanks

Save a package? I'm not sure what you mean...
