Hey everyone I'm having some trouble getting Snow Leopard onto my portable harddrive. Let me be very clear
. I'm not trying to install Snow Leopard to
my portable harddrive, I'm trying to install it from
my portable harddrive.
I've used mechdrew's guide, but when writing the image with the program, my harddrive doesn't show up into the drop down list. This is because that program scans the removable storage and not the local disks. Unfortunately, this harddrive keeps showing up as a "Local Disk" on Windows XP
I've partitioned smaller parts, formated to FAT32 with gparted, and tried to access it from Windows and it gives me errors about how I need to cleanup the disk. When it does work, I tried just copying the .iso file that I ripped from my retail copy of Snow Leopard and, no matter how big the partition, I always get a "this disk doesn't have enough space". Very frustrating!!!
So now my question... Has anyone succesfully installed from a portable harddrive? If so, what guide or programs did you use? I'm borrowing the portable harddrive I have now. It's a 500GB Western Digital. I'm not sure about the model number, if that even makes a difference, but it's the one with the big button on the front of it to turn it on and off.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
