Installing OSX Lion on new hybrid drive (HD/SSD)?
I've got a Mid 2009 Model A1278 2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo processor Macbook Pro and I installed OS-X Lion when it came out by using a USB and following directions I didn't quite understand.
I'm looking into upgrading my hard drive (which is currently the standard one that came with the laptop) to a hybrid drive, possibly this one: 500 GB SSD Hybrid 2.5" Hard Drive
But, I'm not quite sure how the installation process works with transferring data and installing OSX and such. I know that I have to make a copy of the data on my current hard drive and store it on an external, then install the new hard drive and transfer that data. But I think I also have to install OSX onto the new hard drive, and I'm wondering how that will work when Lion didn't originally come on the device when I bought it.
I'm not very familiar with all of this stuff and am not sure about the order of the whole installation process. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Is this a good question?
