I've bought an Solid State Drive (SSD) for my MacBook Pro, and now I need to exchange it somehow. Would this strategy work?
- Create an backup with Time Machine (Snow Leopard)
- Then replace the old HDD
- Insert the new HDD
- Install Snow Leopard (same version as previously used)
- Open up Time Machine, and recover from the last backup
I'm not sure about how to do the last part. Is that hard? What are the neccessary steps?
Or is there a better way? Maybe I don't need to re-install Snow Leopard completely? Maybe the Install CD already offers an option to recover from Backup?
