    I really appreciate all your patience and co-operation. We'll now investigate the issue internally and get back to you on this as soon as possible. Please stand by.

    Thanks for waiting. Is one of your Mac machines a result of drive cloning of the other? If so, then please perform these steps.

    I never got the email that presumably went out to alert me to the above question. As I said in the title to this thread, the MBP used Migration Assistant to set itself up from my older Mac Pro. You tell me if that's "cloning".

    Before we discuss this, please confirm whether you have actually performed the steps suggested earlier. Please do those steps (assuming they are related to your case) if you haven't already and revert with the results.

    You asked me to do those steps IF I had cloned my Mac, and I said asked you whether Migration Assistant constituted "cloning." If you wanted me to do those steps regardless of the answer, you should have skipped the "IF" part. Follow these steps, brought up for the first time months into this thread, fixed it. Seems in retrospect that it could have been solved in 5 minutes (which is what I expected when I asked), but I'm glad it's finally resolved.

    There's no need to make pointless presumptions, thinking that I asked you to perform the said steps regardless of whether or not you had cloned your Mac. After you indicated that you didn't know if Migration Assistant was the same as drive cloning, I asked you again to perform the said steps merely under a rational assumption that those steps might be related to your scenario, as Migration Assistant and drive cloning might have technical similarities although they are different processes. Anyways, good to know that the issue has been resolved. Pls get back to us for any further queries.
