thanks again for pointing someone to my "How to..."
I continue to be pleased that you find it useful enough to recommend.

Click on the exclamation mark "report this post" icon on the upper right and ask to have it moved.
I don't want to report it, but I will if you can't.
See for more on Legacy Support: Please help me understand USB Legacy Support
And more on BIOS here: Are BIOS like system prefs?
I'm not sure about your other issues because I'm not sure I understand them.
Best to try to move this question to a new thread to get further help.

Does this link at the end offer any help? It's not the same situation as yours but there might be some clue in what's said as to why what you are trying to do doesn't work.
And, besides, my note here will BUMP your question to a noticeable position in the list of threads.
I too do what you describe all the time with my Macs (I use SuperDuper not CCC however) I think what you are saying here is that you want now to go from the mini back to your desktop. I'm wondering if something in NBI screws up the simple cloning process so the Mac can't figure out what it's looking at. Just a guess on my part, I really don't understand what NBI does and doesn't do.
Reverting back to Macbook
