Hi everybody

 

I managed to install XxX 10.4.10 on an external USB hard disk. Everything works fine, network, audio, video, etc, except for the fact that I *apparently* can only boot from the external hard disk if the install dvd is present.

 

Ideas, anyone?

 

TIA

check your BIOS settings and see if there's an option to boot from a USB drive. sometimes it's referred to as "removable storage". also get a good luck at the bios POST screen and see if you have a Boot Menu. on my board, i can hit esc at the post screen to get a menu and choose what to boot from, regardless of the setting in the bios.

Sorry, I didn't explain myself. My machine boots perfectly from the usb drive. It simply hangs if there's no disk in the dvd drive...
