Re: wheezy netinst problem on G5 iMac

Copying whole directory trees on a running system is not easy. I would
use tar instead of cp.

On source machine (note option -l, a.k.a. --one-file-system, to avoid

  tar -clf - / | tar -xf - -C /mnt/portable

and on target machine:

  tar -cf - -C /mnt/portable * | tar -xf - -C /mnt/target
