comment How to correct 512-byte sector MBR on a 4096-byte sector disk?
Holy cow! Thanks for the info. I've been trying to clone my Mac/Windows HDD to an SSD for a day now and I was finally able to identify the issue: the Rosewill SATA/IDE to USB adapter I was using to connect the SSD was performing this "reverse conversion" to 4096-byte sectors! So the GPT + Hybrid MBR on the SSD looked like nonsense after I did a dd clone to it while connected via USB, and I thought the clone had failed. But when I connected the SSD directly to my motherboard in place of my old HDD, everything worked fine!
