Short version. Have Tech Tool Pro 3.0.3, downloaded the 3.0.4 update. Want to burn a bootable 3.0.4 CD. I copy the info, replace the updated files, and burn, but I can't get a bootable CD.

If there's 1) a good, standard refernce, 2) a previous thread or c) and FAQ which will answer these questions, then point me there. I searched MacFixit, the TIL and the forums here and couldn't find anything.
The era of anthropomorphizing hardware is over.

uh...its only bootable if you burn a "mac volume" so you'll either need a virtual partition with system software and properly installed TTP3.0.4, or a real partition/removeable media with it. I use a Zip disk to make a bootable 9.1 with everything on it, and burned that...oh, and in toast burning a "mac volume", you'll be able to find an option to "optimize on the fly for space/speed", "bootable", and "autolaunch."
G4/450, T-bird 1.05GHz, iBook 500, iBook 233...4 different machines, 4 different OSes...(9, 2k, X.1, YDL2.2 respectively) PiA to maintain...
