Just got a new intel iMac with 10.4.4 installed.

Is there some way I can make a straight copy of the hard drive to another hard drive, add anti-tpm patches, and drop it into a pc?

Carbon copy cloner doesn't see any mounted discs...

Also, I've read on another thread that the restore disks are of no use as they specifically look for iMac hardware.

I don't know if this works in 10.4.4, but in 10.4.1 works to me, i use disk utility and create a .dmg image of osx86 HD (partition) and after i copy it in any other partition (windows xp or some FAT32). I have 2 osx86 versions installed in my pc (in my master HD) and i use the osx86 partition to restore the prevously created image. Somepeople use acronis, but i've not tried it yet.

It's possible to transfer it, but it is not possible to run it on a PC because we do not have the right patches yet.

So stick with 10.4.3 for now?

there is a 10.4.4 hysteria. why is that?
OK, I admit it's interesting to have next versions patched, BUT do you know what 10.4.4 brings you over 10.4.3?

I've read 10.4.4 is the first version of OS X for intel that lets you use software update.
