Shows as startup, won't boot

I can choose the SuperDuper clone as a startup disc in Sys Pref or in the Startup Mngr, but the computer still boots up from the the original volume.
(Startup Mngr does pay attention when I choose the TechTool edrive)

I'm running 10.4.11 on a 2.8GHz Intel
Iomega has always been a reliable Mac Hard drive for me.
I don't know what the chip set is.

DriveGenius2 confirms the Iomega HDD is in perfect condition
Renaming the clone the same as the original volume made no difference.
