That is correct. A complete reload/initialize system is required. Any save with the OS and LPPs will work.

By "reload" I take it that means a simple slip install won't cut it, right? Like that documented in the "upgrading your system to the same version of the OS" section of the upgrade manual? It's more of an save, initialize disk and all, then restore; right?
In that case, when keys are this hosed, can you even do a new save or do you have to rely upon the old one?
