Nevermind, I think that is a lesser issue.. More bigger problem is no matter how many times i tried, i cannot get to back up my existing drive using super duper.. It works through halfway and prompt different error.. I is deads..

Hi folks, for days i've been trying to back up & migrate my hdd from my first gen macbook(A) to another mac book(B). Unfortunately I couldn't. I need to plot it over as tiger through another new hdd inserted in macbook B, but it couldn't accept the os disc, only leopard.

I've super dupered macbook A into an external hdd, but macbook B reads every settings as 0kb.
I've tried to use migration wizard, it only detect my boot camp windows partition.

Tiger does not allow its migration wizard to "transfer to another mac" like leopards'.

I do not own a legal copy of leopard, the only 1 i have is loan from this macbook B, hence I have to stick with tiger until later.

Please kindly advise other alternatives I can do in order to transfer my files.

Millions of thanks!

I couldn't understood you hard as I trying. I really caught no ball.

Since you got data of (a) in an external hardisk, maybe you could just use (b) aand remembering you need sumthing in (a), just copying it over. Why plot everything over when most are in (b) already, wrong?

Hi Sir,

apologies for the confusion and thank you for the patience in helping.

My intention is to have my applications, data, password, user settings and emails from A to B. Most of my apps are already configured in its Tiger OS. My intent was as straight up as to pluck and play the Tiger into this Leopard-Only-Macbook B. The quickest, safest way that I know was to use migration wizard and transfer the data, key chain, address book, software preference etc over without much distruption.

The migration wizard could not detect A's Tiger partition, but only A's bootcamp partition. After calling apple support afew times, for hours of Indian-English with Singapore-English conversation, I was given a "File Transfer" solution from A to B, instead of "how to let Migration Wizrd detect the Tiger OS drive", hence I give up Apple Support..

I managed to duplicate A's hdd through super duper, I can still access my data through it which I am doing, and has also at the same time accidentally messed up some "built-for-leopard" settings when I overwrite it. So I am having a bad hectic time now.



I learnt and concluded from this scenario that,
Always expect the unexpected.
External harddisk casing will break down when you most needed it, and harddisk will corrupt when you never want it to. Always own 2 external disk casing at least, with 1 that is 2.5" firewire with SATA, not IDE!!

Apple Service Provider do not help you regarding OSX issues, they will refer you to Apple Support.
Before calling Apple Support, get a tape recorder to play a list of things they instructed you to do, for the next few Apple Support crew you got referred to.
Apple Support don't always have a solution and they can leave you hanging high and dry.
Overseas Calls to Apple Support has bad signal.
I have poor hearing and I do not speak English that is comprehenable to Apple Support.
Written communication to apple support is better, but there is no email address online to send it out.

Macbook 1.1 will not run on Macbook 4.1 start up disk and vise versa.

Have a copy of Tech Tool Deluxe from Apple Support, even though I don't know how it works.

Always buy Applecare if you do not intend to resale.

Always have rich friends who have a spare Apple notebook to loan (ideally one with a same gen notebook).

Always be nice and respect everyone, especially in HWZ.. huhu..
