Strange, according to youtube.com/watch?v=dFCF86GOFRI your procedure sounds correct.

You have to take out the battery when doing this. Which MacBook do you have?

comment Is there a canonical guide to replacing the hard drive in a MacBook Pro?
Everything you mentioned about disk dumping, using an external enclosure, etc. are all equally possible with OS X

The error would probably be the same. I suppose backing up, formatting and installing anew would help. 10.6 has access to the Mac App Store, so installing Mavericks from it would be just as easy as ML, without having to make an ML boot disk

The next step I suppose is to reinstall the OS. You won't have to format the disk, and your home directories will stay intact

There's no such thing as an "EFI" partition. EFI is stored on every bootable partition (for OS X, it's in the location I mentioned above), and the default location is stored in the Mac's NVRAM (which can be seen with nvram -p).

By "dock connector" they mean the 30 pin connection. No "dock" required. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dock_connector

Boot the disk, and check if /System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi exists from the terminal (e.g. ls /System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi). When you say "didn't work," you really have to elaborate more lol. Did you get the startup disk selection screen, and did your boot partition appear on the list?

Don't you have the installation media that came with your Mac? If not, you can always ask a friend

As far as I recall, all modern OS X versions have nearly identical installation/recovery modes, so your SL disk will work.

Yes, any OS X install media or recovery media will work
