Which generation of MBP and MBP, and are you using the i386 tree or
the x86_64 tree? It sounds like the MacBook is a Santa Rosa (MacBook3,1)
or later and the MacBook Pro is an earlier generation, and you're using
x86_64.  Or vice-versa regarding the ages, and you're using the i386 tree.

This won't work, as pre-Santa Rosa mac will only boot 32-bit EFI images,
and post-Santa Rosa macs will only boot 64-bit EFI images.
