Boot old 10.6.8 install from USB drive on iMac Late 2012
I'm hoping someone can help with an issue I'm facing.
I recently upgraded from a late 2006 MacBook running 10.6.8 to a 27" iMac Late 2012 running 10.8
The MacBook is pretty much dead. It overheats, buzzes, hangs - hence the upgrade.
My problem is I can no longer use my copy of Logic 8 so I'm looking for a way to boot the old 10.6 install on the new machine.
Upgrading to Logic 9 isn't an option, as I work on projects with a partner who uses 8. We need to move between each other's setup, me upgrading would render his version obsolete.
I have removed the MacBook Hard Drive and put it in a USB 2 caddy, it mounts fine on the new machine under OS X 10.8, but I can't work out how to boot it.
I have tried:
There must be some way to get it to boot the old drive on the new hardware, directly or virtually
Any help appreciated...
