I need help to boot a clone of my current system (10.8.3, PBI6.1b5 kexts and DSDT/SSDT *) from an SD card.

The card has boot0md and the partition boot1h (installed via Chameleon wizard) and, from the clone, /boot.

When I boot from the card (legacy in a CSM incarnation) this happens:
A brief flash of "boot0: done",
then "error parsing plist file" with a spinning cursor for a moment,
then the process falls through to boot from HD.

The card does not show up in the Chimera screen of the HD.

Trying to boot from the ML installer stick shows the card,
but after selecting it (no flags or arguments) it displays 2 lines of "error parsing plist file", than one.
Later a note about PCIRoot UID follows,
then apparently a timeout.

What is going on there? Please help.

If i'm understanding you correctly you want to use the sd card to access your clone?
Run chimera and make the sd card the install location.

The card contains the cloned files. I ran Chimera against it but no change. Tried it MBR and GPT -- no difference.
I think the error happens when Chimera from the card tries to load.
