How to Install OS X on new hybrid hard drive
I am replacing my hard drive with the 500GB Hybrid hard drive that I purchased from iFixit. I have the hard drive and a case with USB cable. I am waiting for a screwdriver to arrive that I need to remove the hard drive.
My question is: How do I get the operating system on the new hard drive? I am presuming that I will have to connect the new drive by putting it in the case and connecting through a USB port. After that, I am lost. Do I copy the old drive to the new, or, will I have to format/partition the new drive first? I don't want to ruin the new drive by doing something that I shouldn't.
Is this a good question?
