RE: Imaging ... dd.
Recreated partition images on server to download to client to rule out
damaged images. Was able to successfully partition disk and transfer
bootable MacOS using new files. Couldn't get the Linux partition to
transfer. Tried on two separate P475s. Stalled out on both.
Anyway, moved drives to a IIci and was able to complete process without
incident. Any ideas on the problem on the P475s? Recall seeing
something about the SCSI controller on some website, so thinking that
was the problem. May be worth investigation?
Thanks for your help.
