    What are the different ways we can boot into an over capacity hard drive? I have a 2008 Macbook that works great! That is until the hard drive was loaded over capacity, an no longer wants to boot.

    I am planning on installing a new hard drive, but the problem is, I can't access anything because the computer won't even bootup. Suggestions for booting into an over capacity hard drive?

    Remove the drive, install a new HDD, install OSX, put the old drive in a USB enclosure, migrate the old drive into the new OS.
