Able to boot from external, but no HD recognized

Tried another tact. Plugged in external drive, then restarted computer and cleared PRAM. Immediately held down Option Key. This time the iBook's HD and the external drive appeared. Selected external and computer fully restarted.

Opened SuperDuper. Recognizes bootable drive, however, does not find the iBook's HD? Drop down menu gives me three choices: 2 partitions on the external (second one is not bootable) and disk image. What happened to the iBook's HD?

Seems like I need to reinstall OS X on the iBook, upgrade to 10.4.10, then restart via the External and copy back to the iBook. Is this correct? Otherwise, I don't know how I can get SU to recognize the iBook's HD.


OK. This is a Universal test I guess. Went back to the iBook. Click on the "to" drop down menu and now iBook's HD appears. Whew. Restoring drive as I type.

I'll post back.
