PsyncX, Target Disk Mode, had to
Authored by: sshears on Sep 05, '02 10:33:13PM

Thanks to the author for psync and thanks, David, for PsyncX. Looks very good.

I used PsyncX on a TiBook to create a copy of my hard disk onto another PowerBook (a Pismo) in firewire target disk mode. I wanted to "clone" my whole computer. (... and then use the second machine as a test-bed for installing and checking out Jaguar...)

When PsyncX finished, Pismo wouldn't boot. Putting it back in target disk mode, I ran "bless" and now it boots into OS X just fine.

The command was

sudo bless -folder "/Volumes/Pismo-volume-name/System/Library/CoreServices"

Just a followup note... I also had to bless the OS 9 folder in order to start classic.

Without the blessing, the Classic startup window just sat there with a happy mac for a long, long time.

It's just a bit more complicated... Repeating the process, I find I have to bless both the OS X and the OS 9 folders in the same bless command:

sudo bless -folder "/Volumes/vname/System/Library/CoreServices" -folder9 "/Volumes/vname/System Folder"

(Use a backslash at line end to continue the command on a second line.)

It was useful to examine the results of "bless" by using the option

bless -info "Volumes/vname"

..and compare to the output of bless -info "/"
