  1. Sorry to be a pain but I've followed it seemingly to the letter 4 times, and this happens every time. I'm not an Apple person, and maybe I'm doing something wrong that you'd think should be obvious, but it seems to me that I'm doing the right thing, and what happens seems sensible to me too. If I do a restore of X, then I'd expect to get X. You're saying restore X and you will end up with 2 copies of Y. How does that work? I did try to just carry on, and everything following this point still seems valid to what I ended up with, all the mentioned folders and links etc are where they're described, so I'm hoping what I've done is actually correct. My next sticking point was that changing the SATA mode in the BIOS made my existing Windows 7 install fail to boot next time. I found this procedure to fix that: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976 it might be an idea to mention that in the guide for anyone else that had Windows 7 installed previously with SATA mode set to RAID. Oh well, back to trying..
  2. Hi, I'm following the guide, but I have a difference to what's described. In 6.8 you say: "For the source, drag “Mac OS X Base System” from your desktop into the empty Source box." and then at 6.11: "When it’s finished, you’ll end up with 2 “Mac OS X Install ESD” drives on your desktop." but I end up with 2 copies of “Mac OS X Base System” which seems what I'd expect from what I'd just done. Is 6.8 wrong, or 6.11, or am I not doing something right?
