I used Super Duper to copy from my old intel machine to my new one. The settings used were-Backup all files, and erase then copy. But the new machine won't boot. I get the gray apple screen with the spinning wheel and then that goes away and nothing else. Inever used the new machine so I am wondering if I should re-partition the disk to get rid of any "run once" stuff that Apple may have on there that did not get erased. I have successfully created bootable external copies so what's up?

It's quite possible that the two Intel macs aren't compatible, Scott. The "right" way to do this is to use the Migration Assistant: did you try that?
