Title:

Replacing original HD with SSD and disk drive?

Text:

My question is more software than hardware. I have the original 500GB that is almost full. That drive has 10.10 installed. I want to replace the original and add a 240GB SSD and a 750GB disk drive. I want to create a fusion setup with these two volumes.  My question is what's a good strategy to get back to my current data? Will I be able to install 10.10 from the internet (I'm not sure I want to update to 10,11)? Will I be able to restore from my time machine back up after fusing the two drives? Should I install an OS on the fusion volume and then restore from my backup?

Thanks in advance.
