I have two questions both relating to booting up. The first is that I have been reading topics about booting to safe mode. Now I know how it's done in Windows but how is it done in Mac?
The second question is about booting from a backup drive. I have started using Carbon Copy Cloner to make a complete backup of my hard drive. If I wanted to boot from this drive (after making the drive bootable of course) how do I do it?

Thanks

Brian

This document covers all of the startup key combinations for Intel based Macs.

To start-up from the cloned drive, simply plug it in, power it on, and hold the Option key down at startup. Then, choose the external as a boot device and restore your backup to the internal drive.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
