Hi,
I've just bought Logic 7, and i want to install it on my external Lacie hard drive. However when i go to install it there is message saying it can only be done on a system running Mac OS. Does anyone know how i can make it an OS X system, without it being a seperate bootable drive?

I'd appreciate any advice,

Thanks.

It must be in a blessed "app" folder, so you must tell the system where the ap folder is, which can be done in the Terminal or by using NetInfoManager (utilities).

It'll move all the folder to the drive.

Note : if you disconnect the drive, the system won't find it and will create a substitutive folder in /volumes/ on the original system drive. Not exactly a good idea (not a disaster, but bothersome).

And I don't write about the exact method as it's not fun I think (and there are better places to talk about it, I'm not confident enough to guide you, it's unix bad breath here).

Now, why do you want to move it away? the important thing is to have audio files on a faster drive, not the app! blink.gif
