Swapping harddrive for SSD in MacBook Pro 15 inch (2012).
I am looking to swap the harddrive of a new 2012 MacBook pro 15 inch with an SSD and then replace the optical bay with the original
I was wondering if the process is exactly the same as previous models. I have looked at the tear down but wanted to make sure
I did this yesterday. I installed a Samsung 512GB SSD. The guide for the late 2011 model did match perfectly:
And use this one for cloning the harddisk:
I am planning to replace my existing HD with a new SSD. Im on OS X Lion 10.7.4
I need to clone my HD on to my SSD. Can I not do this using my latest Time Machine Back up?
wouldnt the TM back up install the OS plus all my applications and files etc ( basically bring it back to the current state including preferences)?
Is this what time machine is for?
