Thumbs up Help boot from external USB drive (fixed) - 08-14-2009, 11:55 AM


I want to boot my Mini9 from an external USB 60 GB HD drive (Hitachi DK23FB-60). The drive is GUID formatted, and I have cloned the MacOS 10.5.7 system (DellEFI 1.2) of my Mini9 on it with Carbon Copy CLoner.

I have enabled USB legacy and set USB as the first media to boot from at setup, and it is also selected as boot volume in MacOS System Preferences, but the Mini9 keeps booting from the internal SSD.

What else should I do ?

Thank You

Edit: Its ok, I have seen that I can choose the boot volume by typing "-" during the progress bar display at startup. Sorry for the trouble.
