iMac 2008 fails to boot from FW drive

Hi,

Just completed a Full Backup of my iMac 2008 on a FW drive (IOmega Ultramax).
At boot i press the option key as usual and I'm prompted with the choice to boot from Macintosh HD or my external FW (GUID Partition)
Suddenly after I select my external drive the grey Apple turns to a forbidden sign



and boot continues on Macintosh HD.
This Apple article explains that the problem can be related to a renamed system folder or kernel panic but I do not think is the problem, here, especially when Mac OS X - 10.5.3 Leopard boots normally from my internal drive.

Any clue?
I'm using a registered version of SD 2.5.

- Kind Regards
- Pasha

Sounds to me like the drive might be mispartitioned, actually. I'd really need to see the log from the backup, as well as a (compressed/ZIPped, native XML format) system profiler report to tell. Can you send that to me at the support email address?

No problem. What I need is the support e-mail address (never had to write because SD rocks!) and the exact place where I can retrieve and pack the info you need.
