bootable clone on external drive won't recognize password
I used Super Duper to create a bootable clone on an external firewire drive.
When I restart my MBP holding down the option key I can choose the external drive. OSX (10.4.11) starts to load and then encounters a name and password popup. Entering the administrator name and password of the internal drive fails - as if either the name or password were incorrect. Only one account on the machine - still using the admin password originally chosen. Any thoughts, wise ones, as to why the clone won't recognize the password - or work arounds to allow this drive to boot?
Many thanks.

Sounds to me like you didn't make a "Backup - all files" with "Smart Update", but instead used either Copy Newer or Copy Different...
