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.
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. ;)
