    Hi I'm from Italy, first of all sorry for my bad English.
    Question is: Can a I restart my G5 running OSX 10.3 from a previously created using disk utility (after booting from CD), boot disk image????????
    Suppose that image is stored on an external FIRE WIRE Hard drive. MAC boot disk is corrupted and I replace it with an identical brand new disk. I start from CD, and then i run disk utility, and then restore image from the fire wire HD.
    Can the saved image disk replace and fit as the same prevoisuly installation.
    Can I boot from the restore disk image????

    Thank You all in advance

    I know that there's no easy way to boot directly from a disk image; however, if you copy the image's contents to the hard drive first (assuming the disk has just been formatted and has nothing on it), it should work. I never thought of just imaging my entire hard disk and copying the image to a FireWire drive as a backup method. Maybe I'll try doing this in the future.
