Question: Disk Utility issue since snow Leopard Ugrade
to use Disk Utility to Restore DMG Images. Any ideas?
Plug In Firewire Drive.
Boot from Install CD
Create Image of my "Macintosh HD" Snow Leopard, save to Firewire Drive partition.
Boot from Snow Leopard on internal HD
Try to Restore "Macnintosh HD" dmg onto another partition on firewire drive.
Note: It does not matter if I use installed Snow Leopard Disk Utility or Disk Utility
on booted install DVD, results are same, as follows:
Could not find any scan information. The source image needs to be imagescanned before it can be restored.
so... from Disk Utility Menu
Images>>Scan For Restore produces this erroe:
Unable to Scan "Macintosh HD.dmg" (Invalid argument)
Nothing has chaged in my process here since 10.5.8 any I
have since re-installed 10.5.8 in a separate partition on
my internal HDD and above procedure works. It does NOT
work in Snow Leopard. This is unacceptable and a downloaded
patch ain't gonna cut it for me, I need the Disk Utility on the
Boot DVD to work. Apple is gonna have to have a recall.
Help. Can anyone else reproduce this error?
