    I have a G4 "sawtooth running OSX 10.4.11. Is it possible to boot this mac from an external USB2.0 drive?

    Thanks all,

    Nope, not possible. Only on intel macs. You can use firewire though.

    PS: Use mroogle to search for this topic before you post. There are a bunch of threads on it.

    If you use super duper to clone to a USB2 drive, it should come up in the boot menue.... - Just hold "option" key down during reboot.

    Did it on a Powerbook 12"
