Question duping a FV2 disk

Setup...
  • New Mac mini being used for imaging.
  • source: FV2 mounted and unlocked boot HDD (from a MBP) connected to the mini via TB.
  • target: Unencrypted SSD mounted via USB3.
Imaged just fine, but the SSD won't boot in the system.

Basically I was hoping to move to this SSD w/o decrypting first (or using migration assistant, etc.), but can't seem to figure out how to get the computer to boot off the new drive. It alternates between the apple and slashed-circle logo. Guessing it's some issue with EFI and/or the missing recovery partition.

Any idea if there's a way to get this to work? Of course I can decrypt the HDD first, but that's a lengthy process that would be nice to avoid. Thanks!

Try attaching a USB2 cable to the drive, Chris (it'll fit 1/2 the port), then booting from it.

I only did the imaging via usb3/TB. Once the image was complete, I installed the SSD back in the MBP, where it didn't work as I described. I can try booting the SSD externally, but ultimately I want it back in the computer the source was taken from, so that wouldn't solve the problem.

Thanks

So - did you try booting it externally? Or did you install it without checking it?

I had to button up the MBP, but attempting to boot the imaging Mini with that SSD gave me the same alternating grey apple/slashed circle boot loop.

I'm going to try restoring the recovery partition (a fresh one as opposed to the one from the MBP) on that SSD and see if that makes a difference.

We might want to simply try updating prebindings on it, Chris. Send me some support email.
