How do I clone Install Disks to TM drive?
Authored by: RepentantFan on Feb 02, '08 07:38:09PM

I've read over the comments here and the referenced hint, yet both seem to assume one Install disk, not two. If it were one, I could see it simply easy to restore/copy the Install disk to the new drive. My assumption is that restoring the 2nd Install disk would destroy the contents of the 1st disk on the new drive. Am I wrong here? I confess I haven't checked the 2nd DVD to see if the contents are in separate directories. I would prefer to use the Disk Utility, though I have SuperDuper, also.

A follow-up question would be whether I need to manually create a boot block (make bootable) on the new drive after I've restored the Install disks to it?

Thanks.
