Cool, just set up a 10.8 install on a USB drive, and it boots to that install just fine, tested Target mode again, boots just fine. Tested reverse-firewire boot mode, also boots fine.

Tried to boot to Snow Leopard DVD = 3 beeps

So I took the SATA drive out of the external USB 10.8 drive and put that in the MacBook and its booting up fine now out of it's own HDD.

Will continue testing. I know liquid spills can have random effects on computers, fair enough. I hope somehow now it holds steady for a while. It's just weird that it would have very selective start up troubles, depending on source.
