re-booting from an external HD?
My iBook G4 has been set to Network start
up for some time because of a faulty motherboard. Since the HD is full I`ve bought a replacement 320 GB internal HD & because Leopard is no longer available I`ve cloned the original HD to my Lacie 500 GB external HD. An old iFixit manual suggests holding down Option whilst re-starting to bring up the "Boot" menu. I`ve been trying to test boot up from the Lacie unsuccessfully. Holding the option key I`m been taken to the blue screen with the curly arrow & straight one & a symbol of the iBook`s HD but no sign of the Lacie either here or in the start-up section. The Lacie is a USB HD..Can anyone tell me how to re-boot from the Lacie??
Is this a good question?
