Default Re: HD Native cant Update Firmware after installing PT9.0.5 Update

It sees the bootable HD in starup system preferences, but when I select it and hit restart, the computer restarts, but freeze at the apple logo ( no spinning circle there).
I believe that I won't be able to start the tower with an older OS than the one that came with the computer even if it bootable and ready to go in an external HD!!??
If I'm wrong please let me know how to do it!

would it be possible to make the TOWER the target with firewire and open PT 9.0.5, already installed in it, to upgrade the firmware?
Thanks again for your Help.
You haven't tried what aditu said to do have you? Install SL on the laptop internal harddrive (not the external drive), connect the laptop to the desktop and then do the Target mode thing. Try that and see what happens.
