10.4.4 - problem with booting

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

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 ?
