    I have a linux on my Internal HDD on my macbook that I need to get rid of. So, to do this, I am making a bootable disk of my OSX partitian with CCC to my USB hdd. How will I restore this? Can I simply launch Disk Utility from the OS X install DVD's, select the drive, and click restore?

    Thanks!

    Ummm .... Select your USB drive as your boot disk in Preferences and reboot. Then use CCC to restore to your internal drive. I do it all the time.

    Boot from the USB drive, run Disk Utility and wipe/unpartition the internal on the MB. Then use CCC (or SuperDuper) to clone the drive back.

    Allright, I decided to use Superduper anyways, because it is also made for Intel.

    Thanks guys :)
