10.4: Boot Intel Macs from iPods and FireWire drives
Authored by: pmccann on Feb 23, '06 05:14:05AM

Yep, this is pretty much what I've found. Just grab, say, another mac ("mac2") and boot the intel mac in firewire target mode (hold down t when booting it, with a FW cable connecting the intel mac to mac2). Mount the FW disk onto which you wish to clone the intel mac, and use Disk Utility to Restore the intel mac's volume to one of the partitions of the FW drive, with erase destination clicked. Block copying works its considerable magic, and the cloned partition on the FW drive will boot an intel machine.

Much easier than I'd expected given all the early talk.
