Boot INSTALLED system from CD?
I am trying (on a G4) to get the INSTALLED system to boot from a CD, without much luck. First, could anybody out there tell me if what I?m trying to do is possible and second,
how do I do it/what am I doing wrong? I can get yaboot up from the distribution CD, stop it at the boot prompt (so it doesn?t run the installer, the system being already installed), but nothing seems to work from there, all I get is a message about bad (or wrong, I forget) partition, try again... (In fact it gives me that partition message even BEFORE the boot prompt.) The system is installed on an external SCSI drive with no BIOS on the card, so I can?t boot from that drive and would like to boot from CD if I can. In fact, I would like to create a boot/rescue CD if I could so I don?t have to use the install CD forever, but I haven?t gotten any attempt at that to work yet either. Any advice about any or all of this would be most appreciated.
