Thank you very much for the guide on OS X installation. It was very smooth. Now I have problems on creating an backup image onto an USB drive.
What I did was booting into OS X on the SSD
and trying to create a new image of system partition to an USB drive. But it always says "Resource Busy"
In your guide, it says " I typically image my drive using the Leopard DVD software by booting into the Boot132 DellEFI ISO", did you mean the small USB drive used during initial installation? But once it boots up and I selected 81, it loads the OS on the SSD
, not the installer on the original large USB drive. and then same "Resource Busy" happens when I try to create a new image of SSD
partition to the large UBS drive (it's a 16GB SD card in a reader).
What did I miss? I've been puzzled for two nights. I think I've tried to partition the large USB to Mac OS EXtended (Journal) Format with GUID partition table (hence the installation files are gone), but it didn't work.
Could you help me on this?
Thank you very much.

Works great, I do it as my main setup. As for the USB install, I just used a backup copy that I imaged over to a flash drive just yesterday. I've also installed directly to the flash drive, it works just fine. Just make sure to run DellEFI on it.
