Moving OS X to new HD
Authored by: Robert Hancock on Apr 12, '01 07:15:46PM

I posted the original method of using ASR to move OS X.
There is a problem using the ASR supplied on the 9.1 CD--I got the same message as one of your posters when I tried it this morning. I use ASR 2.1.1 downloaded from Apple and also supplied in the OldWorld support package provided by Ryan Rempel (
In my posted 4-step list (written at 3 am), I forget one important first step; make a disk image of the OSX disk first. It is time consuming (about 30 minutes on a 733 G4+ when the Dveloper Tools have been installed) but I only did this once and then used this image for subsequent moves.
Hopes this helps.
