    Snow Leopard 10.6.7 How to clone to another mac

    We have some intel based macs running snow leopard 10.6.7. I have set up one mac with all the applications etc installed i now want to clone/ghost this mac to 20 other macs. What is the best way to do this ?

    I have tried carbon copy and created the boot disk but when i restore the image the mac wont boot ?

    I have tried firewire in transfer mode ( holding the T key down ) and copying over but the mac wont boot

    Any ideas ?

    Are you keeping the 'T' key pressed until you see the firewire logo on the screen?

    Sorry misread your post.

    When you have your 'gold' Mac setup in target mode, create a disk image of it by using Disk Utility on a firewire connected second Mac. With this image which you can clone the other Macs. How were you thinking of doing that?

    I used CCC to image our Macs and had no problems using this with the firewire target mode.
    Have a look here to check you are doing it right How-To: Image OS X and Boot Camp to a New Mac: Apple News, Tips and Reviews (ignore the boot camp bit unless you want them dual boot)
