10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Mar 29, '08 10:18:58PM

What happens when you run Software Update, or any kind of installer or other updater, on such a universal drive? Can we assume that all updaters and installers will be available in a universal version, and if so, that Software Update will automatically install a universal version? I'd be concerned that, when the drive was connected to an Intel Mac, that at least for some updates, at least in Software Update, Intel-only code would get installed, with no option given to the user to make a choice, and the equivalent/reverse would happen when the drive was connected to a PPC Mac. If this is so, this would still argue for the use of two separate volumes on an APM-formatted drive, one for Intel OS X, and one for PPC OS X.
