    I plan on swapping out 320Gb hard drive on my 24 iMac 8,1.
    Can I simply take the new bootable clone hard drive that I made and simply drop that into the machine? Will the computer see the clone and automatically boot up into it?
    Or do I have to make bootable clone then install a new blank drive into the machine and clone it back in? :confused:

    Other question is...Would the Caviar Black be too hot? Or should I go with the Caviar Blue?

    Now I just need to decide on a Cavair Black or Blue drive due to concern of any heat issues that might arise with the Black
