In Topic: Install Lion to external USB drive...

27 November 2011 - 10:36 AM

Sorry, I was not clear. After I have prepared the install partition on the USB drive with GUID partition set with ##### I try to boot, but my laptop (Dell) cannot. If the format is MBR, it boots with the install without any problem.

I try also the 2nd. What format type have you set for the external USB HDD? If I set GUID, I cannot boot from the external HDD. If I set MBR, I can boot but cannot install Lion on the other partition of the external HDD.....

I tried to install Lion to the external USB HDD. After completion, I need to boot from the USB stick and would need to select the external USB HDD to boot. The problem is that even when I have during computer start-up both USB devices plugged in (the install stick and the external HDD) on the Chimera screen only the stick is visible, plus the internal HDD but not the external USB HDD and therefore cannot continue to boot from it.... :-(
Do you have any idea what can be the problem?

Yes, you can do that. I use external drives all the time. And OSX runs quite fast on USB 2.0, once it gets loaded.

All you need to do is make sure that the boot loader (Chameleon) is also installed to the external USB HDD.

Yes, but how do I make sure? When is Chameleon installed? I suppose it is installed by ##### for example? If I select the external HDD when starting ##### (never tried yet), can I be sure that the bootloader will go there and somehow not to the internal HDD?

In Topic: [solved] Performance Issues with Lion on Workstation 8

I can confirm that this works 100%

Lag is gone. Performance is improved SIGNIFICANTLY.

Hi. Just a question... I read that Workstation 8 emulates hardware accelerated graphics card. Could it mean that we could finally have QE/CI support??
