    Hi All

    I am having an issue with Restore not working in Disk Utility in 10.5.4.

    I have the 10.5 client installer on a separate partition on a emac i use to install machines from. [ also have a 10.5 server installer partition].


    both work well and install successfully.

    if i restore that partition to another drive it goes thru the whole process including verification and right at the end it gives the error message
    "operation timed out".

    i have previously restore'd to 2.5" external drive from both images [ my on the road installers...].

    i cannot recall whether the system was 10.5.2 or 10.5.3.

    I have replicated the problem from another machine that had the installer on aswell - [ from a system running 10.5.4]

    i will try to replicate this again on another emac running 10.5.2 and then mount the images via target mode and then try to do a restore.

    i will update this forum post when i do.

    thanks in advance for any help :)

    update...

    have just booted from 10.5.2 and the same error has come up :(

    will now try 10.5.

    i am trying to recall whether this only worked on 10.4 .....

    will try from a 10.4.11 system if the 10.5 doesn't work.. [ now where is a box that i hav 10.4 on... ??? ]

    omm

    another update.

    worked fine from a machine running 10.4.10 :apple:

    and yes i have installed successfully from the new partition :)

    must be a leopard issue - as didnt wk with 10.5.0 either

    can any apple staff / dev's confirm this is a known issue?

    cheers

    You should file a bug report with Apple.

    I don't think the feature is broken entirely, since I think that is what I used to migrate my system to a brand new hard drive, and it worked.
