Thread: copying mac hd's

Has any one copied a G4 HD that is usable? I tried using carbon copy but it gave me kernel errors and it would not be seen as a bootable drive even after i chceked the box for it. Is there any way to do it using disk utility or drive copy?

how do I do a disk image with out errors? I get lots of errors when the drive is almost done? I believe one was a kernal error and the rest are installed software errors.

what about carbon copy? that is the software i get errors in towards the end. The disk image always crashes when I scroll up or down on the page or even open any thing on it.

Disk images in OS X aren't bootable except using some complex methods over a network. What you really want to do is to partition an external Firewire drive and simply clone the OS to one of the partitions (such that you still have another partition for more permanent data. You will want to periodically clone the OS for backup purposes, but in the process the partition hosting the backed up OS is erased in its entirety.)
