Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs
Authored by: vrcomm on Jan 29, '08 01:41:01PM
I have a PowerBook G4 1.6 w/ 15" screen running OSX 10.4.11, and was in the process of switching HD from 80GB to 250GB. Never enough disk space. None-the-less I came accross this thread and it was a life saver. First of all, I finally got a clear indication that holding down the Option key was all I needed to do to select my boot drive on powerup. Even better, I was able to easily move from my old internal to the new internal by using SuperDuper ([link:] www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html). Wow it WORKED! I was able to test the new drive before even cracking the case. So after I finished the drive replacement I purchased a registered copy, its that good. thanks to everyone.
