08-12-2003, 05:05 PM
Hi, I have installed OS X on my external device, i was able to register etc using it
but when choose teh startup disk to be my external (it is a visable startup disk) it
never seems to find the firewire device in time and boots from the original internal drive, is there a keyboard command?

I am not talking about Target disk mode..
Oh yeah i have a G4 /450 tower using the original FW ports
