"Cloned" drive won't boot up!

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

Posts: n/a

My son just cloned his G3 drive to another drive using SuperDuper. Now, trying to boot from the new drive, he receives the error message "You are unable to log in to the user account "elon" at this time."

Elon is the name of the new drive. Nothing more. He can't get beyond this. What can we do.

Unfortunately, his dvd player went out, so we don't have the option of using the DVD to boot to at this time.

Any suggestions? Your help deeply appreciated!
