So I have read/seen the guides that tell you how to migrate/copy your current OS X install from your old HDD to you new SSD, this however requires a SATA to USB cable in which I don't currently have. I do have an external 1TB hdd, plus of course the existing HDD with 10.8 and my new blank SSD. Is there a way that I can copy OS X from my current HDD over to my external, then install my SSD and copy from my external to the SSD? I have tried looking up these methods, but they seem a little cloudy. There is one way to use my external HDD as a bootable recovery disk, but from my understanding this would require totally downloading 10.8 over again, which would be a huge pain since I am currently on my parents slow DSL connection So basically what is the best method to go 10.8 on Current HDD -> External HDD -> New SSD Thanks so much guys!
