Learned today that you can't boot from the DW disk to run the utility because the OS on the disk doesn't play nice with Macs made within the last 7 or 8 months (even though v4.4 is Mountain Lion compatible), and Alsoft can't release an update 'till Apple gives them the goods.

You can install DW on another machine and use target mode, or boot from another drive with DW installed. But the disk and C key combo? Fuhgettaboutit. frown

I always use an external to boot from to run it anyway, too slow from the DVD.

Yeah, the DVD route gives you time to raise a family by the time it's done. eek
