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.

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.

This answer is almost identical to the previous one, and does not add any information to the discussion.

@Ross McKinley I suspect this is what I'm going to have to do. I'll let you know the results when I do.

comment Why is Apple hardware test (AHT) not loading when pressing key D on system start?
I get this exact same issue: "AHT does not support this machine." I think this means you're supposed to run apple diagnostics, but for some reason have AHT installed instead.
