Since the drive was a pull from an iMac G5, I would have thought it  
would have had a Apple_Partition_Map (unless they stopped using that  
when they went to G5s).

I couldn't figure out how to check that, but I did figure out how to  
use diskutil to force that.  The drive is now being copied over  
again, then I will try running bless again (although it still seems  
odd to me that CCC would state the copy will be bootable if I still  
have to run bless manuall), followed by actually retrying to boot  
from the drive.
