Probably better to clone or install a basic system to an external drive and add SuperDuper to that.  I remember reading something about SD not working well from a read-only source which would be a DVD naturally.

There was a program called BootCD that did what you want but it's compatibility ended with Panther.

Was thinking about that for my Yikes ...it's on OS 9 and can't boot from external firewire.
Maybe there's an alternative  of SD for OS 9  whith "smart update "?

Thanks

Here's a link to BootCD which would be fine for your Yikes and OS 9.

This program can make an OS X boot system (plus utilities) to be put on a USB flash drive.

Kris,

Are both of those links the same? They both refer to DasBoot.

Will this software make an OS X bootable CD (DVD)?

Thanks, Jack

Oh, thanks Jack!  

Fixed now.


Gee, and it wasn't even THAT late....  rolleyes.gif


I don't think DasBoot is meant for making a CD.  Perhaps Toast can do what ADSR needs, at least I know it works for OS 9 and earlier X versions that can fit on a CD. Tiger and Leopard seemed to have changed things making the creation of a homemade boot disk a bit harder, if not impossible.

I enjoyed "DasBoot" myself. But that was several decades ago when I was still using an Apple ][...
I don’t like the fact that my chances of survival seem to be linked to the common sense of others. :Thinking:

If you want to back up your OS 9 install, you can do so with SilverKeeper (older version)

http://www.lacie.com/silverkeeper/releasenotes.htm

I don't know about its exact capabilities in OS 9 compared to Superduper in OS X, but give it a whirl. Maybe someone who has used it with OS 9 will come along and provide some details. Do read the Help pages in the documentation too. smile.gif
