Clone not seen.

So the last week I have been getting some random sounds from my HD (Clicking every minute or so.). I have used CCC and SuperDuper! to clone my install onto another HD. I can boot into it fine but only if I use the bootloader on the original HD. Once I take the original HD out of the scenario the system don't boot. Is there something I failed to do to the new drive making it not present it's self as a bootable option?

 

Note that these two HDs are the same make and model.

 

Original HD

	 Disk Description :	WDC WD5000AACS-00ZUB0 Media	Total Capacity :	500.11 GB (500,107,862,016 Bytes)
	  Connection Bus :	SATA	Write Status :	Read/Write
	  Connection Type :	External	S.M.A.R.T. Status :	Verified
	  Partition Map Scheme :	GUID Partition Table

 Mount Point :	/	Capacity :	499.63 GB (499,629,690,880 Bytes)
	  Format :	Mac OS Extended (Journaled)	Available :	416.36 GB (416,363,024,384 Bytes)
	  Owners Enabled :	Yes	Used :	83.27 GB (83,266,666,496 Bytes)
	  Number of Folders :	65,752	Number of Files :	273,553

 

Cloned HD.

	Connection Bus :	SATA	Write Status :	Read/Write

	Owners Enabled :	Yes	Used :	82.75 GB (82,753,576,960 Bytes)
	Number of Folders :	65,455	Number of Files :	273,159

 

Noticing that the mount points are different, is this the cause and how do you change it?

Thanks!

There are different kinds of cloning methods. With CCC did you choose

the Everything method or the file method? Are the UUIDs the same?

Not all clone tools include the MBR which is needed to boot.

 

Perhaps Chameleon's boot0 hasn't been but into the MBR as in Step 8.

Google to find a more recent Chameleon*tar.gz to download.

You should already have both Cham's boot and boot1h on the SL partition.

I selected everything within CCC. Thanks for the TM86 link it worked perfectly. Seems the second drive was lacking a bootloader! All is fine, Thanks again.
