Upgrading Hard Drive and RAM
I purchased the 1TB SSD Hybrid HD from iFixit along with 4x2 GB RAM to upgrade my 2010 MacBook Pro. I've never attempted anything like this before so I'm researching the crap out of it. Along with the tutorial on iFixit, I located an Instructables tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/Upgrade-...
that included a step to clone my old hard drive (with SuperDuper) to the new hard drive. I have an external hard drive that I've used for Time Machine back ups since earlier this year and I read somewhere else that Time Machine doesn't create a bootable back up to start up from. So I have a couple questions. Does Time Machine not create a bootable back up? Can I just clone my current hard drive to my new iFixit drive and once it's in just start up? and lastly, once I have my new hybrid hd installed and running, if I use my current external hd that I've been using for Time Machine, will it work for back ups from the new drive?
Any advice is appreciated!! As I said before, I've never attempted anything like this and just want to do it right!
Is this a good question?
