Firewire Boot?
on May 6, 2005 at 7:23:19 pm

Hello,

I loaded Tiger on my Mac last week, now lightwave 7.5 does not work. I have a external Firewire Drive on my computer. Is it possible to load the OSX 10.3 on that drive and boot off the Firewire dirve when I need to run Lightwave? If possible how do I select which drive to boot from on powerup?

Thanks

Bob M

Yes, you can install the OS on a firewire drive, after that goto system preferences under startup disk and select it and click on restart, same thing to go back. or you can hold down the option key when you boot up your computer to scan all busses for OS's to boot from.
