G4 USB 2.0 booting works at 2.0 speeds with Leopard
Authored by: zeraien on Nov 23, '07 01:39:54PM

I have succesfully booted a Leopard install using a USB2 drive on my powerbook g4, and it was running at USB2 speeds (averagnig about 6mb/s when using SuperDuper to backup from an external booted upon USB2 drive to an internal drive)!

So if you have Leopard, you can boot off of USB2. About time I'd say.

Screenshots and more information here: link
PS: SuperDuper Leopard backups are not yet bootable (as of 2.1.4), but I used disk utility and it worked fine.
