Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
Hi There, I tried creating a BootableCD using the Tool section in tri-edre's CloneX2 and I am down to my 3rd coaster now

The CD was created trying at first to put disk utilities from OS X 10.4.11 (version installed on my G4 laptop) and did not work, the next attempt was trying to put only CloneX2 as an application and still did not work.

What happens is that when starting the laptop using the CD created by Clone X2, OS X would start loading from the CD showing the gray screen with the apple logo and the spinning daisy, but after about 2 minutes of loading the screen goes blank the CD stops and the laptop reboots itself. It would not make any difference if the system was started from the CD by pressing "C" on the keyboard or by using the option key and then selecting the icon with the bootable CD volume. In the latter case the CD icon has an OS X on it, meaning that the laptop is aware that the CD in the drive is bootable and in both cases the whole process of loading the OS goes through, but then fails to actually reach the point when anything can be launched.

Any fixes for it? I was about to upgrade to X3 but then this drawback deterred me from going forward.

The bootable CD tool of Clone X 2 will work with Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4.4 maximum. You can still use Clone X 2 to make bootable copies with all Tiger versions.

If you want to make bootable DVD with Clone X above 10.4.4 (including Leopard) you must use Clone X 3.
Clone X 3 will use [bDVDs[/b] not CDs anymore, make sure you have a DVD burner.

Re: Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
I am having the same problem. I'm using the latest trial version of Clone X as of today ( April, 8 2008 ) on an Intel machine with no results -- just a grey screen with a spinning wheel. How can this be fixed?

Re: Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
Hello oerm4411,

are you trying version 2 or 3. If you're using version 2, it will not work on Intel machines.

For version 3, i need more information. Can you boot on the DVD following this procedure:
- Boot your machine on you internal disk
- mount the Clone X 3 DVD on the desktop
- Reboot holding the Option (alt) key on you keyboard
A screen with at least two choixie will be on screen.
- Hold down the shortcut Command+V, then click on the arrow under the Clone X DVD

Now tell me what is happening, Does Mac OS X starts to boot writing down the usual boot stuff (you can boot you machine hold Comand+V to compare), or does it complain about a kernel panic?

Apple didn't release au new DDK since January, so all softwware useing DVD can create bootable DVDs... And i'm not sure yet, but i think one of the latests Mac OS X update broke down Clone X DVD.
I can't fix it without a release, but before i have to find where is the problem.

I may contact you via pm if i have a beta version, but not before the en of may-begin of june.

Sincerely

Re: Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
I just made a test on an iMac x86, the DVD works correctly, using Clone X 3.1.0 and Leopard 10.5.2.

So nothing broken here for the moment...

This is with Clone X version 3 on an Intel machine.

I booted the system in verbose mode like you asked, the computer comes to the following lines and just stops:

CSRIDTransitionDriver::switchToHICMode legacy
USBF: 2.732 CSRHIDTransitionDriver[0x2cbeb00](IOUSBCompositeDevice) GetFullConfigDescription(0) returned NULL
CSRHIDTransitionDriver ... done

Yes, you may PM me if you have beta software or an update to the software.


Thanks.


ETA: I am using a new Intel iMac with an aluminum skin. If you are using a Mac Pro, that could explain why it works for you and not for me.

Ok, thanks. The good news is that the System starts to boot, the bad one is that a driver stops it (as far as i can see).
Are you using specific peripheral on this machine? Did you try to boot with everything unplugged except keyboard and mouse?

Can you type this command in the Terminal and give me the result? (it's the list of items in the folder /System/Library/Extensions

ls -A -1 /System/Library/Extensions


I tried a few google searches about CSRHIDTransitionDriver, but nothing comes up.
I'll try to find if i have something related in my machine or in Apple's libraries.
If not, it may come from something you installed (but what?).

Sincerely

Can you try to turn off Bluetooth on you machine, then create a new DVD with Clone X? You can use a DVD-RW for your test, and delete it each time. RW are able to boot too.

Thanks.


Bluetooth is turned off.

Re: Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
I've found the problem; I was creating the DVD before in a limited account. This morning I tried to create the DVD again -- this time as an Administrator -- and the DVD worked perfectly.

Re: Clone X2 - Bootable CD is not working
Hi,

nice discovery...
Strange, Clone X runs as root user, that's why he asks for your admin password. He should not have problems... Maybe it's enough for a backup, but not for DVD creation

I'll investigate on thats, thanks for your help.

Sincerely
