Hello all...
I have an external disk for backup which I've been using for some
time, both for TM and CCC backups. It is connected to my 17" G4 1.33
GHz Powerbook using FW. I see that it is not bootable. Disk Utility
shows that it has a GUID Partition Table, while other external drives
that I have use the Apple Partition Map. I'm assuming that is why the
disk is not showing as bootable. I'm willing to wipe out the disk in
order to set it up to be bootable but I don't see any choice in Disk
Utility to do this. I believe that CCC is set to clone and make the
drive bootable but either didn't or if it did... then is the FW
connection the problem? Or what??? I'd appreciate any help on this
one. Thank you.
