How the Leopard Killed the Tiger

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Today I thought I'd take my work machine (G5) and install Leopard on a second internal drive while the top drive would not be effected and continue running Tiger and all my wares. All I'd have to is hold the option key on boot and select the appropriate OS. Well it didn't quite work out that way.



The first thing I did was install Tiger on the second drive just to make sure that I could do as above. Worked great. Then I installed Leo after all of Tigers updates. Worked fine...until I attempted to restart into Tiger, on the original top drive, and all it did after the initial boot was shutdown. Tried to boot again and same thing...shutdown. Then I ran Disk Utitity/Repair Disk from my Tiger disk and it said that there were serious errors ("Keys out of order. Rebuilding Catalog B Tree. The Volume XXXX could not be repaired". Why I wondered, I never touched that drive.



Took the second drive (Leo) out and still have the same problem. Zapped the PRAM, nada. I hope an updated, new copy (42) of DW can fix things.



BTW, The only option I have available in DU is to reformat the drive. The drive is not available to do a fresh system install.



Any other suggestions other than DW?





Thanks for any help

    Did you backup the original installation before you did this?

    Unfortunately not. At home I'm a backup nut with our business.



    Worse case scenario I reformat and reinstall incl my wares. Nothing like a fresh system.

    Ran DW this morning. The first attempt failed when the system locked up, so I gave it another try and then she fixed lots of errors:

    So I'm up and running great as far as I can tell. All I can say is this is the hardest I've been down where DW has truly come to the rescue. Keep in mind that my system wouldn't even boot. I'll be ordering my update this week. I do not work for Alsoft, so don't consider this spam.
