    Maxtor external HD will only partially mount
    There's a similar thread already running but I didn't want to hi-jack it. My problem is, owing to an errant resident HD, I've loaded OSX onto a Maxtor external HD (firewire), with 3 partitions. The imac is booting OK from there but the other 2 partitions aren't mounting.

    I have verified them and it says they're fine but they won't mount. I#ve attached them to another G4 and they mount on there.

    Any ideas please?

    What OS is the other system running?
