Re: Can Someone Post How-To for Cloning OS X??? - 02-04-2009, 04:58 PM
I haven't done this myself but will be soon. I want to be able to install OS X once, and push the cloned image to new hard drives or new minis on the fly. My attempt will be as follows (all PC by the way):
1. Create a bootable USB drive using HP Drive Key Boot Utility, FAT32 (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...TY-I23839&lang)
2. Copy Norton Ghost over to the flash drive (I think ghost.exe is all you need)
3. Norton Ghost can then image/clone the hard drive to another hard drive and can be restored later.
My understanding is Norton can image HFS+ Partitions and Hard Drives, one could also use Acronis True Image Home 11 and/or Workstation 9 can also image HFS+ drives (drives not partitions).
If this doesn't work I will be trying to get Norton Ghost working on my BartPE usb drive, which I've already created from my Windows disc.
