making a bootable duplicate to external FW HD that works

Recommended Posts

I have a G4 PowerMac DP 450 running 10.3.4 and a LaCie external FW HD. The latter is partitioned with one partition for data backups and the other for a bootable duplicate of my internal HD. I run an automatic duplicate of all files except caches weekly and the bootable partition shows up in System Preferences>Startup Volumes. However, when I try to start from the FWHD, I get the gray apple screen without the pinwheel cursor. What am I doing wrong?
