Replacing MacBook Pro Hard Drive with SSD
After seeing your tutorial, I've decided to install an SSD drive on my MacBook Pro, and move the old hard drive into the Optical Drive location (thanks!).
After I mirror the hard drive onto the SSD, I'm concerned that the system software and application software will not work, since the SSD will now be the startup drive. What I'm HOPING is that the software detects something else on the computer (other than the hard drive) in order to recognize it and work. That would make this irrelevant (I think). I've searched to find an answer, but can't find anything definitive.
So the question is:
Do I need to deactivate/reactivate (or uninstall/reinstall) my software (adobe CS, Microsoft Office for Mac, Mac OS 10.7.5, etc.)? Or should it work seamlessly?
Is this a good question?
