Responder a: SSD not booting after installing OS X 10.8.4Finally, I managed to get the disk working... Don't ask me what did the trick, since the blessing wasn't needed anymore. All necessary files where blessed and then the reboot finally worked. Here what I did and finally I managed to get it working: 1) SSD Reformatted 2) Runned the OS installer from a bootable disk 3) restarted OSX ==> failure on boot 4) Looked at the disk blessing => only the OSX install folder was present and was blessed 4) run Carbon Copy Cloner and copied my entire spinning hard disk (for the 4th time...) 5) looked at the disk blessing => all necessary folders and files were blessed 6) restarted OSX with holding the option key => restart from the SSD 7) Success on boot from SSD 8) reset of the startup disk from HD to SSD via system preferences 9) reboot and everything still works... Thanks for the help! P.S.: following URL gives a good description of the disk-blessing http://www.bombich.com/software/docs/CCC...-makes-a-volume-bootable.html
