BS on Transfer Leopard from iMac to MBP

I have a problem transferring Leopard 10.5.8 from an iMac G5 (early without iSight) to a 2.5 GHz MBP. Migration Assistant keeps on running into problems, so I am trying to use SD - my much preferred way.

I partitioned the MBP HD and installed vanilla Leopard to 10.5.8 to a small partition. I installed SD on this partition.

I cloned the iMac with SD, to two external HDs - one Apple partition, the other GUID. I had problems with one so hoped I could rectify with the other.

Booted into the vanilla partition on the MBP and used SD to copy from the external disk to the larger MBP partition using Restore All. When first try with each external disk didn't work, I tried updating permissions first. Every case gave the same result.

Even though the System recognised the external disk clone, or the MBP copy, I got the persistent Blue Screen and Pointer where the login screen should be in every case.

Apple has published a fix for the BS, but in this case it is not an update, and there are none of the nasties.

Help please.
