Trouble booting from cloned disk
Authored by: Henry Reynolds on Mar 13, '02 12:08:33AM

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?
