Use target disk mode to create a disk image backup
Authored by: bdog on Dec 21, '05 08:26:08AM

You can boot the same system on any Mac. The only problem I know of right now is that Apple only included Front Row with iMacs. I hope they put it in 10.4.4 (otherwise I have to hack my standard image to get it installed and functional). You should also update to 10.4.3 to make sure that new, Apple brewed trackpad, will work on your image. OS X is a VERY portable OS (very important for things like NetBoot).

All versions of OS X can boot on all hardware that had shipped previously. The only exception is when a new model ships with a custom build of the OS that is not a separate version number (example is the iBooks from this summer which ship with a special version of 10.4.2 that includes the scrolling trackpad driver). Doing a full install of 10.4.3 is currently compatible with all Macs that Apple currently ships.
