    Default Make bootable clone with RSyncX

    Ok folks, here is a tut' every hackintosh dude should follow to avoid reinstall the all stuff when something messed up ur hackintosh install and you can't boot it anymore.

    What we are going to do is setup a bootable clone of your startup partition on another backup partition.

    First, get the software, it's just a GUI to enable easy backups with the tiger out-of-the-box command-line utility rsync.

    http://archive.macosxlabs.org/rsyncx/rsyncx.html

    Setup a backup partition to hold ur bootable clone.
    Be sure that 'Ignore ownership on this volume' is not checked. You can verify it by right-click on your backup partition, then expand ownership and Permissions.

    Now fire up the RSyncX prog, it's under Applications->Utility

    Supposing that ur startup partition is called hackintosh-1 and your backup partition is called hackintosh-2, apply the following settings:



    Fire the synchronise button.
    After a while ur bootable clone should be done.
    Please try to boot ur clone to test it. Just press F8 at boot and select ur backup partition.

    To update ur clone, apply the same setup, but instead of 'Archive', select Update, so it will only copy the files that have changed. It's much faster than doing a complete archive again.

    Now you have no more excuses not to test a new patch or ppf.

    Enjoy!

    You want more, have a look at RSyncX forums : http://xnews.soad.umich.edu/RsyncX_Forums/

    I am going to work on a way to use this method to make a bootable pen drive version and get it hopefully small enough for a 2gb pen drive. Wish me luck.

    I think it will not work if it's not firewire...
    But wish u luck!

    What about creating a hackint0sh live DVD or live CD!
    That would be nice!

    Hello and thanks for this tip
    Gonna give it a go, getting tired of trying to patch and crapping that up

    I guess all you do if you mess up is boo with the backup and use rsync to put ack onto the failed volume? please correct me if I am wrong.

    Thanks

    For some OSX86 installs (among them 10.4.5 Myzar) persists an issue with the "bless" command, which appears to prevent apps like CCC from working properly. I doubt that RSyncX provides a solution for OSX86 installs where CCC does not work.

    Bill(bo Hughes)/a.ka.-Noob_villham here:

    Anyone try actually doing the CCC version manually?

    Although I'm in the process of getting the dough together to build a FRANKENMAC (that's what us PowerPC'er's call 'em) /HaCkInToSh of my own (I run a souped up Digital Audio G4 in a ATX Rackmount case) , I found when I dloaded CCC and tried to use it with any version of OSX after the 10.4.5 update, I couldn't get a "bootable" clone.
    However,
    I decided to "ditto" by hand after logging in as root, and it worked.
    I haven't checked back @ the CCC site to see if this is a known bug or not, but it seemed as though I'd throw in my $.02 on my 1st Day @
