Can disc utility create multiple partitions on an external firewire drive using a GUID map on one partition and the Apple map on the other two partitions?
I tried. After cloning my internal drive to the Apple mapped partition I tried an option key reboot and the three partitions never appeared, even though they were on the desktop. Changing startup drive in system system preferences to one of these partitions resulted in a blank screen. Had to power down and reboot.
I've successfully made a multiple partitian backup drive (same make and model), but all with the Apple mapping scheme.
Any thoughts. Thanks in advance.
No. You can only use one partition map at a time. Why do you need partitions using APM rather than GUID? What do you want to accomplish? You have an iBook G4, so you can only use APM.
