Well, I tried 0.3 and now 0.5. Still no success. I get to the login screen and it just hanges forever. I burned it with toast and Disk Copy. Both got me to the same place. I tried this on a clean install of Jag. on a 667 titanium. I think this SW could be great and I would like to see it work!

This tool Rescued a Downed Mac, but it's a lousy way to back up a Hard drive, with most of the CD space taken up by the OS X, OS X took up 500-600MB of that CD space leaving 100-200 MB of space left.

I have found the Jaguar Boot CD maker a very useful utility, try and make it on a fairly new computer if at all possible as this takes much less time than on an old one. I reccomend you set as high a ramdisk as you can (use your discresion) regarding the amount of ram you have available as this will become useful for running the apps placed on the CD on creation. Bear in mind it will take a very long time to boot from an optical drive, especially on an iBook, mac mini or G3 or G5 imac (anything with a slot-drive). The superdrive in the eMac takes a while to load it. You may get confused with adding applications, don't be, it will propt you (the icon will jump on the dock) to add your apps and you can select them one by one and pressing the open button, again, once it has added the first one, it will prompt for the second and so on, remember you can use a USB or firewire device with apps preloaded if you wish whilst it is booted. This is a much better option as CDs only have 700mb storage

This worked great! And so easy to use. I made a CD with DiskUtility, DiskWarrior, CarbonCopyCloner and some other maintenance tools. And it helped me keep our Macs clean and in good shape. Thanks!

This is a brilliant programme. I have had no trouble with it ever in Panther. Takes a while but who cares, the end result is a bootable CD with any application on it you like. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can we have a version that works on Tiger. I'm desperate.

Worked well for me. Like the author said, it doesn't work with apps like Norton which has files all over the system, but it works well with Disk Utility and TechTool Pro 4.0.4 and those two apps give you just about any test and repair function you'd want. I was able to test and repair my OSX system with those two. What do you want for free?

Easily made a Boot CD for Techtool 4.0.4. My iMAC is running MasOS 10.3.9. When I tried to boot up with the boot CD I just made, the computer boots up to the point of "Starting Login Window" and then stays there for Hours! It won't boot up past this point. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated

Brilliant. A little slow, but it does exactly what it says on the tin. You can add any applications that currently reside on your hard drive, and run them from the CD, and they work! Well done to the developer. 10.3.9 on a Pismo.
