Create a case-sensitive HFS boot disk
Authored by: merp on Feb 09, '05 10:12:05AM

For some bizarre reason, this didn't work at all.. The "bless" command doesn't recognize the HFSX volume as HFS (duh), and won't update Open Firmware as a result. AFAICT, I'll either have to diddle OF directly (and hope that it takes) or reformat as HFS+/Journaled and give up on case-sensitivity.

If anyone has a suggestion, I'm open to it...

That's because this hint is ridiculously convoluted and complex. Just follow what I posted here:

Problematic restore of a HFSX boot disk
Authored by: htlmac on Jul 11, '06 07:59:06PM

I'm seeing similar problems, while backing up the newly created HFSX boot volume.

"bless -info -folder /Volumes/TIGER2" reported nothing blessed,
even though using "sudo asr --erase --format hfsx ..." (or with SuperDuper).

Manually "bless" it:

sudo bless -folder /Volumes/TIGER2/System/Library/CoreServices \
-bootinfo /Volumes/TIGER2/usr/standalone/ppc/bootx.bootinfo \
-label "TIGER2"

then, during powering up, this new volume showed up as an alternative device,
though the label was not quite right--either missing label or showing up as a pic.

Is this a bug in the open firmware? asr? or, both?
