1. is your old HDD which you migrated MBR or GPT partition scheme?
2a. Do you have clover or Chameleon (latest versions I guess) installed on your ML partition?
2b. pls post your chameleon or clover boot and smbios plists
3. you can install DIRECTLY via pacifist, w/o extracting first. Try google or better metacrawl something like 'install package with pacifist' or 'install package via pacifist'
In general I wonder if it might be better to start w/ the latest regular f3a BIOS + either clover or Chameleon, and work everything out which tends to cause probs w/ h'tosh, esp. hot-plugging monitors, live res switching on all connected mons, OS and monitor sleep and wake-up.
Which smbios model identifier makes sense for this board? Which one do the h3a bootloader use?
Would you folks who use the f3a BIOS on your 100% working system + cham. or clover pls. post their boot and smbios plists?
