I am trying to clone my HD and failing. Looking for any help or pointers.

 

I am running 10.4.11 on imac 7.1, 2.4GHz core 2 duo, with 4GB ram. 20in monitor from mid 2007.

 

I am cloning my HD to a Wester Digital 1.8 TB HD with 5 partitions. The info for the drive is below.

 

I set up the partitions on the drive using Disk Utility and that seems to work fine.

 

I then tried to clone the drive using DU. That failed, only copying a small fraction of the internal HD. The error messages were not verbose.

 

I then tried to clone my internal drive with "Data Backup". I was able to make a clone of the drive, but when I tried to boot off it I got a "kernel panic" error message. These are described in detail on this page, the exact screen shot  shown on the page is what I saw, with the "you need to restart your computer" message.

I then tried to clone the internal hard drive onto the external drive partition (BU2 in the notes bellow) using Carbon Copy Clone. Again, I was able to clone my hard drive with no error messages. But when I try to boot off this partition (by restarting and holding the option key and selecting the partition I want to boot from ) I get the same kernel panic.

 

After rebooting from my standard internal hard drive I get an error report on the kernel panic, also shown below. I looked up the only part of the kernel panic error message that looked non-generic bdevvp failed on google. Sounds like the error is occurring at a very low level having to do with vnode.

 

my question is, where do I go from here? Anyone think this is problem with external HD? Should I be doing to boot differently?

 

I don't speak kernel so I have no idea what all the 0xhex messages mean but I take it the boot is failing at some very basic level of the operating system.

 

Any advice welcome.

 

My overall goal is to upgrade my operating system to snow leopard, and then beyond if I can. But before I do that I want a bootable copy of my HD in case that does not work. I have the snow leopard DVD.

 

Any advice or help greatly appreciated.

 

 

 

This is the information about my external drive. Is it some how setup wrong for booting? Should I be using a different drive?

This is the panic report I get when I try to boot of the BU2 partition:

Here is what I could find about bdevvp

 

bdevvp(dev, vpp)

              Create a vnode for a block device.  bdevvp() is used for root

              file systems, swap areas and for memory file system special

              devices.
