I've just bought a larger secondary hard-drive (going from 40GB => 80GB).
However, it fits in the modular bay where my optical drive (CD-RW/DVD drive)
is. What I want to do is clone the 40GB hard-drive (currently the primary
hard-drive on my computer) to the new secondary 80GB hard-drive -- which I
will insert via a hard-drive sled into the modular bay.
However, to boot g4u, I need to use the CD-ROM drive with the boot-CD. Yet,
I would need to remove the CD-bay to put in the hard-drive I want to clone
the old hard-drive to. So, how am I to do this?
Can I boot g4u from a USB CD-ROM/DVD drive? What about ejecting the g4u CD
after I've booted, and then inserting the secondary hard drive in it's
I don't have access to an FTP server with enough space to clone my
hard-drive that way.

That's a matter of your BIOS, not the media it's loading.

That works, g4u doesn't need the CD inserted any more once it's been

g4u doesn't support IDE/SATA hotplugging *i think*.
For USB it should do.
