    Is it possible to copy the disk image in OS 9 and transfer Tiger to the eMac HDX partition? Or is there another way to do it? I can access Tiger as a startup disk but that is the Quicksilver's HD. Or should I rerun the Tiger disc and select the eMac HDX as the destination?

    I understand target disc mode but not how I can get Tiger on the eMac by it.

    You can use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable copy of Tiger on the eMac.

    You use it for free :)
    You can pay for it to get rid of ads, but to use, it's free.

    It's pretty straight forward to use.

    You must copy a Tiger partition. It isn't like OS 9 where you can simply drag it over. Use Carbon Copy Cloner and set the source as the Tiger partition on the QuickSilver, and then set the destination as the eMac's hard drive. You want the eMac in FW Target Disk Mode, and the QuickSilver started up.

    I do now having a working version of Tiger on the eMac. thanks for all the help.

    I realized it clone everything and being on an eMac and not actually on the PMG4 when I use is kinda annoying. Is there a way to change some settings like the computer/home folder? It shows PMG4. Or would that require to re installing?
