    I'm trying to create a boot drive for my G4 mac mini. The mac mini's cd-rom drive doesn't appear to be awesome so i'd rather install it on the external hard drive from my macbook pro. But since the macbook pro can't boot on an apple partition map drive, it only lets me install it if the external drive is set up as GUID. Any thoughts on this?

    No, PPC Macs require APM, while Intel Macs require GUID.
