    My old faithfull iMac G4 has two partitions, one 1.3.9 for everyday use, and one for backing up my iBook (running 10.4.10). I've just done a full clone of the iBook to the iMac, booted the clone and am now happily using all my usual functions from the iBook on a 20" screen. Question is, is there any reason I should not simply use the clone instead of the 1.3.9-partition for everyday use? The install-disc from the iBook won't run on the iMac, so I'm thinking that might cause something to go wrong at some point?:confused::eek::confused:


    Any thoughts appreciated,

    Your "clone" drive as just as good as the 10.3.9. The only limitation from use a SuperDuper copy is that you can't go from PowerPC to Intel (or Intel to PowerPC).

    That sounds fantastic:) Being an old sceptical bastard, I think I'll run with the clone for a little while and see if nasty things happens. If everything turns out to be dandy, I'll wipe the large partition so far used for 1.3.9, and run the clone from there as everyday workstation.

    Thanx for your answer.
