I have a PM G5 Dual 2.7 10.5.8. I've been tying to use the Resore function in Disk Utility fr a year and every time I try I get an error "can't establish communication withe helper tool"

I have reinstalled the system so many times I may melt my disc. I've done every thing to make this work. I can do it on my other machines. Is there some bug in this model? It seems to be in DU Toast works ok.

The usual bug in that model is they are liquid cooled and leaks cause corrosion of the motherboard.

And are you using Restore with say an external hard drive or a hard drive in position two in your PowerMac? It is similar to migration Assistant transferring information between two drives.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

One of 5 internal drivres as source< Also no leaks due to a Panasonic LCS. Funny deal is if booted from a system on a shirt drive it works, Like something in the G5 Dual 2.7??
