Howdy! Yes, you can certainly use Carbon Copy Cloner to create a bootable USB External drive this is an exact copy of your original Mac's hard drive and can work as such. General steps: 1) Start up with your Macbook 2) Connect your external hard drive 3) Using Disk Utility in your Mac's Application->Utilities folder, repartition the USB external drive for Apple GUID, then reimage it for Mac OS (give it a name like HDbackup or whatever you want) 4) Start up Carbon Copy Cloner and make a bootable copy of your hard drive (that's an option you'll see) and let it copy everything over from your Mac HD to your USB external drive. Then, when done in 20-30 mins, shut down. 5) Switch to another Mac, plug in your USB external drive, then turn on the Mac computer while holding down the OPTION key. This will give you the option to start up off the USB external drive. Select the USB external drive. 6) Run CarbonCopyCloner and set the source as your USB External drive and the target as the MacHD 7) let it run until it's done and then that's it. Your second mac has been reimaged successfully. http://www.mguhlin.org/2010/01/download-la-mode-reimaging-solutions.html <http://www.mguhlin.org/2010/01/download-la-mode-reimaging-solutions.html> Miguel Guhlin Phone: 210-617-3330 Email - firstname.lastname@example.org Blog: http://mguhlin.org Portfolio: http://mguhlin.net --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
