I have an emac backup on a hard drive, which I made using Superduper. Whenever I try to start up from the hard drive it tells me my monitor resolution is out of range. I tried different monitors at different resolutions. Is it posisble to restore a Mac Mini from an eMac backup?

thanks.

You're trying to boot the mini with the eMac backup and you're getting this error message?
Is the mini a G4 or Intel? I doubt it would work with an Intel mini.

Don't think it will work as bryphotoguy says. The eMac resolutions etc will be all different. Get a Tiger retail install DVD, a black disc, and try that on the mini, provided it is NOT Intel.
