It doesn't work.
I can boot to it from the good mac with option key, but not the bad one. Both using external usb to sata cable.

It's like the bad mac has an old bios or something.

Good Mac: Boots from new drive, and does it very quickly btw.

Bad mac: gives me this screen, I can move the mouse, but can't click on anything.
