Boot PowerPC Macs via USB 2.0 drives
Authored by: nakae on Jun 12, '08 09:40:16AM

I tried booting from an external hard drive using the suggestions from another post and superduper and had absoluetely no problems. I have a G3 Imac running os x 10.4.11. The only thing I did notice is that the upload was incredibly slow (like 11 hours for a full clone of my HD slow??)

Any suggestions? I think it might be running at a USB 1.1 speed not 2.0. Any patch or hint to change the speed so that my mac recognizes the cable as 2.0??
