Hi *

I have strange problem with 10.4.4 booting.

I want to setup mirror backup partition of my 10.4.4 on dedicated partition on my second HDD.

So, I create designated partition on my second HDD, and I made DMG image from my working 10.4.4 volume. Next I restore DMG onto backup partition using Restore in 10.4.4 DiskUtil.

Where is problem:
When I'm trying to boot from my second HDD - I have black screen with blinking cursor in upper left corner of screen. No single message from Darwin bootloader.
I already tried to run "bless -mount /Volumes/10.4.4Backup -setBoot" on 10.4.3 - no change :dev: .

For me it looks like bootloader on MBR level isn't working properly.

What strange: when I boot from 10.4.3 Install DVD - I receive "Press any key to install...." message. Not pressing any key works as expected - causes proper boot of 10.4.4 from my backup partition :D !

Can some kind soul help me with this issue ?
