I made 2 partitions on a USB drive. On one I installed Dellminiboot and Syslinux so that it would be bootable. On the other I backed up/cloned the SSD
using Carbon Copy Cloner. Everything went fine and I can boot from the USB/backup.
But when I tested to see if I could restore the backup to the SSD
, CCC could not recognize the SSD
as the Target drive. CCC could recognize the SSD
only as an option for the Source drive. When I choose the USB drive as the Source, then when choosing the Target drive CCC only shows me the 2 partitions on the USB drive to chose from. The SSD
is not shown.
Can anyone explain why this should happen?
If I run Disk Utility the SSD
and the USB drives are shown.
EDIT: I realized that although I chose to boot up from the USB, it actually booted from the SSD
. I still have to learn how to properly boot from the USB.
