TechTool Deluxe Disc Included With AppleCare Won’t Boot MacBook

Tom Bridge’s new MacBook Pro died — it hangs continuously on the startup spinner screen — and so he tried booting from the TechTool Deluxe disc included in his AppleCare package, only to find it can’t boot Intel-based Macs. Personally, I’d be very uncomfortable switching to an Intel-based Mac before Alsoft comes out with an Intel-compatible version of DiskWarrior.
