comment What folders does the “all my files” finder view pull from?
@0942v8653 of course, lol. Fortunately, I think all the important stuff was in Desktop and Documents, but I want to be complete.

comment Reset the PMU on macbook when the left shift key is dead
You might have some luck taking the bottom case off the laptop, and then disconnecting the battery cord, and then holding down the power key. You shouldn't need to take the battery out completely, but it's still a little risky.

comment Replacing “apple hardware test” with “apple diagnostics”
Also, not to be pedantic, but my original post stated "When I try to run in, it fails, saying my hardware is not supported" in the original sentence-- I'm sorry if I wasn't clear.

comment Replacing “apple hardware test” with “apple diagnostics”
I've got my finder setup so invisible folders are visible. For future reference, the folder I need to delete (and replace) turned out to be on the MBP's recovery partition, under /com.apple.recovery.boot/.diagnostics.

comment Replacing “apple hardware test” with “apple diagnostics”
Thanks. I deleted /com.apple.recovery.boot/.diagnostics on my recovery partition and replaced it with the /com.apple.recovery.boot/.diagnostics folder from a friend's retina MPB (same model). It now works perfectly, thank you for helping me fix my problem.

@bmike That's the crazy part. My mac definitely didn't ship with it, but I somehow installed it when trying to copy over my old drive.

You are correct, the AHT that boots does not work. I don't seem to have a /System/Library/CoreServices/.diagnostics folder... which is odd, because AHT does boot, but does not run (saying my hardware is not supported). I'll try copying that folder from a fresh install.
