10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: fmlogue on Mar 19, '08 06:47:16PM

Well, I finally took possession of my Mac mini Intel. I had no problems using the external firewire volume that I had been using as the boot volume on my PPC mini, although I had to boot a second time to get it to settle in. I did have to setup the bootcamp volume on the GUID internal disk, but since you have to reboot to get into Windows that is nothing. I will be curious if Parallels or Fusion will allow me to use the external, AFP volume and I will be on the lookout for any problems with software update being unable to install on a AFP volume, but I suppose that updating when the system is booted into the PPC will work.

I did successfully, as far as I can determine, change the MAC address on the Time Machine volume to continue the Time Machine backups, but anyone doing so must realize that you must escape the space in the Time\ Machine name when you use the terminal.

Thanks for the hint, and I will report any future adventures.
