Drag&drop is necessary to specify the target drive when restoring from an image.
But still, restoring an OSX86 installation from an image on an external Firefwire harddisk does not work. I get all kinds of strange problems, e.g. error 16, target drive busy, operation not supported and whatnot.
I am trying to restore from a compressed 2.8GB DMG-file. Any help appreciated.

The target partition needs to be formatted before.
Unfortunately, the partition I restored doesn't start and I am stuck with a blinking cursor.

i made my dmg from a working, booting partition using superduper.
Do you have a boot-cd for restoring it, or how would you do that? The only reason for using disktool is really that I can conveniently start it from the installation DVD if something goes wrong and when I can no longer access the OSX partition.

Apparently something happens to the disk during the JAS install that doesn't replicate during a CCC or SuperDuper backup routine. DISK BOOT FAILURE inevitable.
The Ghost solution sounds plausible for now, I guess. Maybe a hardware RAID mirror would work to get an exact copy of an OSx86 installation onto another disk. Break the mirror to tinker; rebuild with the working backup; repeat.

Only thing afterwards is to install chameleon on new harddisk.
Swap and boot new one.

Is Norton Ghost (in windows) the best for creating an image/restoring a hackintosh?
Does NG make a bootable CD or must I restore from within Windoze.?

on my normal mac mini, i make an image to another partition or hard drive using superduper and then boot using cd to use the disk utility to restore the dmg file overwriting the boot drive.
i did this the other night only to find out that the jas 10.4.8 boot dvd's disk utility doesn't let me choose/specify anything as the target disk...i could specify source image but could not get it to specify destination.

Sorry if that's no use, I'll need to make a backup myself soon so will be looking into it.
