I get a circle with a line through it when booting up (similiar to a no smoking sign) which sounds like I need to to a new install. I do not have my data backed up (external time machine drive broke 2 weeks ago and didn't get a new one yet) I borrowed a friends external firewire drive today at work. Can I install Leopard to this external drive and boot from it and then use migration assistant to grab data from my non-bootable drive? Then copy the external to the main hard drive? How would I go about doing this? Thanks in advance!!!!
