Strange question, but pardon me. I fixed a Mac issue by resetting the SMC. Before that I made a bootable clone on an external disk. If I boot from that clone, will the problem that was fixed by the SMC reset still be there? I'm assuming that the SMC status isn't something that isn't recorded on disk, but is just in PRAM. Just wanted to check.

Hello,

Correct. SMC reset only affects the System Management Controller chipset, and does not control/affect NVRAM/PRAM, or the OS/contents of the hard drive.

You should be able to startup from the clone without issue, as long as the issue was corrected by the SMC reset.
