Making drive Intel-compatible

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Robert Montgomery, Jun 14, 2007.

  1. When using Disk Utility to install a GUID partition map onto a drive,
    are you supposed to choose "Current" partition (which is Mac OS
    Extended) or "1 Partition", (which is Mac OS Extended Journaled?

    And after the parting, how do you get the computer to automatically
    transfer the data to that drive?

  2. Journaling has been the default for a while, so it's gotten a good
    shakedown cruise, as it were. It's worth turning on.
    From where? And what nature of data?

    You do realize you don't need a GUID partition map to _use_ the drive on
    an Intel Mac; only to boot from it, right?
