I'm trying to transfer OS X from my iBook to my iMac DV+, and having no sucess whatsoever. I have done the usuall routine of make all the folders visible and move .bin sbin .dev .hidden etc. I moved all of the relevant OS X folders (sa far as I can tell) and when I try to boot, I get the smilie face and the spinning beach ball. I tried to boot up again using cmnd-v and it seems to not like something. It gets stuck either on "line 23 of rc.common" or something else which I can't identify. So... what should I do? Should I: a) keep trying to transfer the files and search for any that I may have missed b)back up all my data to an external HD and use the iBook software restore on the iMac (Fry's ripped me off and didn't give me the OS X install CD and the Software Install CD only has OS 9) c) I have the OS X.1 upgrade CD. I know there was a way to make it a full install CD, before Apple made macfixit.com kill the article. I am also faily certain of which file to edit/remove. Only problem: I don't have Toast (and don't really have the money to buy it) and my CD burner (Sony/OnSpec CRX-1002XE with CRX-120XE mechanism) doesn't work in OS X (actually it does as long as it's in a FireWire enclosure (according to people on the apple.com discussion boards), but it's USB, and I don't have a spare FireWire enclosure) so I can't make a bootable CD, as far as I can tell. I do, however, have a demo of CharisMac's Discribe 5 Demo (OS X) with 5 free burns left on it, but when I try to use that, it'll only let me make an OS 9 bootable CD, unless there's something I've missed. Any thoughts/suggestions greatly appreciated.
