Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs
Authored by: jiclark on Oct 25, '06 10:39:20AM

This is weird, because I was recently trying to do exactly this, to implement another tip here regarding making a single drive that could boot both Intel and PPC Macs. When it came time to install Tiger on the PPC partition, it woudn't let me, stating something like "can't install on this drive because this computer cannot be started up using this drive". I did some searching, and seemed to find near universal consensus that PPC Macs couldn't boot from USB (2 or otherwise).

So what gives here?
