10.5: Verify partition map prior to upgrading
Authored by: flognoth on Oct 29, '07 03:24:25PM

Apple Partition Scheme is actually a supported partition scheme for the Intels.

The only gotcha is you can't install it as an OS the GUI. If you create an image of a bootable Intel based Mac and then restore it on to a Apple Partition Scheme drive or partition it will boot and be fine.

This technique can used to create a dual partitioned utility drive so you only need one drive to boot both architectures - though the each architecture will need it's own partition.

The new question is using the above method - can you make a single partitioned utility drive using Leopard (since it is now Universal) that will run on both architectures?
