not booting from backup drive

HI there,

I have SD installed on my machine. At the moment I am unable to boot from my backup drive. Is there anything I can do to make it bootable?

The boot option was certainly chosen at boot time.

Cheers,

Noah

What kind of backup drive did you use, what Mac do you have, and how is the backup volume partitioned?

PowerPC Macs don't support booting from USB drives.

More than that, actually, you can't start up a Power PC Mac from an Intel OS.
