Imaging from Lacie External Firewire Drive OS10.3.2
Posted on 2005-03-03
I partitioned my Lacie External HD 30/90. 30 for the OS 90 to hold my images. I installed through my 14 inch G3 ibook.
I am able to go to a users computer, plug in the fire wire drive and hold down the option key to choose bootable system (Firewire Lacie).
I can then use Net restore to force my image onto disk. (User already backed up).
Problem: I have no problem imaging another g3 ibook (12" or 14") but when I try to boot to the Lacie drive from a G4 ibook I get a Circle with a line through it (Ghost Busters sign). I assume this will happen when I go to image an eMac as well but have not tried yet.
Question: When I installed the Osx onto the Lacie drive did it load drivers or something to attach it to a G3 ibook and when I try with a g4 it thinks I am swapping the Hd with the g4 and won't let me boot to it. Seems to be backward compatable. Should I try to load the system through a G4? What is stopping me from using my EX Lacie drive as a portable imager?
