TOPIC: OSX 10.5.8 eDrive remains vivible when booted to my OSX 10.4.11 partition??

OSX 10.5.8 eDrive remains vivible when booted to my OSX 10.4.11 partition?? 02 Jun 2011 22:44 #669

Did a fresh install - 10.5.8 & TTP4.6.2 - on to a (new for me) PPC G5 160 GB HD, divided into 6) partitions, in to an eDrive that strangely remains visible when booted in to my other freshly installed OSX 10.4.11 partition??

It disappears as it's supposed to when booted to the main startup OSX 10.5.8 partition.

I did install DiskWarrior on to the eDrive "invisible" partition, when booted from it, but, since I was told that adding to the eDrive is permissible, I assume, that should not make it behave differently on each bootable partition. Should it?

A visible eDrive is no longer locked, thus open to problems, right?

Is there any wisdom you can share here?

TIA

In order for the eDrive to unmount automatically a few seconds after the boot is completed, TechTool Pro must be installed on the active boot volume. Install TechTool Pro 4.6.2 on the startup volume with the installation of Mac OS X 10.4.11, then restart from that volume. Installing another utility has no effect on the automatic unmounting of the eDrive.

Turns out I had installed TTP 4.3 0n both OSX partitions, but, had not yet launched it from the 10.4.11, so it was not recognized, yet.

Please be sure you have TechTool Pro 4.6.2 installed on both volumes. There is no version 4.3.

That's the version.
Should've copied and pasted from my original post. LOL

Thanks for the clarification. I have had a few times myself when I should have copied and pasted.
