Items I have: 500GB HDD (with all of my data, on Lion, in my computer) 256GB SSD (Crucial- BLANK, still in the box) SATA to USB 2.0 Adapter External enclosure for the HDD with USB to mini USB (empty right now) Carbon Copy Cloner Bootable DVD of OS X Lion DVD with Firmware 2 for my Crucial SSD What would be the BEST way to transfer my HDD to my SSD, while maintaining all of my files,settings, and the Lion Recovery Partition (I don't think CCC can copy this). Would it be safe to swap my HDD out for the SSD without having a backup, pop the HDD into the enclosure, clean install Lion from my DVD, download CCC again, connect my computer with the enclosure and transfer the HDD back over? Would my HDD keep all of my data intact while I am installing Lion? At what point in this process do I install Firmware 2 on my SSD, before installing Lion? Thoughts?Thanks.
