ASR 2.1 and EZ-Gig Card
Authored by: neopunk on Feb 10, '02 08:17:15AM

This was my lazy man's way to duplicate an OS X partition onto a new drive in my G4 powerbook.

After installing the new drive, I put the old drive on an ez-gig card. I booted into 9.2 off the OS 9 partition on the new drive, dragged the OS X partition from the old drive onto ASR 2.1 and selected the wannabe OS X partition on the new drive as the destination.

It was slow- about 20 minutes, but 100% accurate.

Errors with cloned disk
Authored by: Henry Reynolds on Mar 12, '02 01:46:04AM

I followed all this and it worked great for a while. I'm not sure why, maybe because of copying the wrong files to my cloned disk, but I can't get it to boot any more. I've initialized it, using zero all data option. I can install 10.0.4 onto that same backup drive and have it boot. But still after I clone to this backup drive it won't boot. The error I get is:

/etc/master.passwd: not a directory

Any ideas?
