    Hi,

    I am sure there is an answer for this somewhere, but I can't find it. I have tried, honest.

    Is there any reason why you should not do a new clean OSX install directly onto an SSD from you MP install disks? For one reason or another, generally people seem to clone another drive, but is this necessary.

    I tried this method and it took ages and eventually failed to install. I am not sure why this is the case. Before I try again, I thought I would ask you guys.

    Many thanks,

    glassbathroom

    Can't think of any. I clean installed on my SSD.
