interesting observation

I have two identical iMacs. One that I use routinely (let's call it Joe), and another that I use for other stuff (let's call it Frank). The logic board on Joe crapped out, and Joe is defunct. So I pulled Frank over, and copied the last backup from Joe onto Frank. Now Frank feels just like Joe.

Except ...

The boot disk of Frank was called frank, and the boot disk of Joe was called joe. After cloning Joe onto Frank, Frank is now named Joe BUT, its boot disk is still called frank. That is, the clone was complete EXCEPT for the name of the boot disk.

Why is that? If you're going to clone, why don't you clone the name of the boot disk as well?
