Hi everyone. Sorry if I am in the wrong forum, as you can guess im a newbie at the forum - not at computers though (6 years experience.. ) So I have a 1TB WD Harddrive USB and I copied the Leopard Disk image and restored it onto it in a 500GB partition. I have tried to boot it up normally by holding down Alt on startup but the drive doesn't come up. Ok. I have tried going into the Startup Disk, it comes up and when I click on it and click restart it doesnt restart, it just does that Mac Beep thing. I have recently just tried to boot it up manually using the Open Firmware technique. It doesn't work. I have a PPC Mac and I know that they can't normally boot up USB Drives but the other users which I read on the thread how to boot up by the Firmware technique said they're PPC and it worked. So if anyone can help, please do! I just wanted to format my computer, My leopard disk is gone now but I got it copied JUST IN TIME to my Harddrive. I formatted my computer and now i'm stuck on Tiger. I have literally tried for weeks to try to get this done on my own but with absolute no luck. So if you can help me, please do - help a newb!
