    Hi. Will the external display work while I boot from the Leopard DVD? My MacBook Pro screen is broken and I want to make an .img file of my HD before I install the new LCD.

    Thanks so much!

    I know it will recognize and remember the arrangement and orientation of secondary displays. I'm not sure if it remembers which is the primary display, though. Would you like me to check?

    You could try backing up with Carbon Copy Cloner or Time Machine rather than dealing with the .img dealy.

    Currently I have the displays set to 'Mirror' just in case. I will try the program you suggested first. Thank You!!
