    I used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone HDD in late 2011 Macbook Pro to external hdd. Can I install new SSD then copy OS X from external to new SSD or do I have to clone OS X to SSD before installing it?

    I appreciate the help.

    You should be able to install the SSD, boot from the external drive, and then clone the external to the installed SSD.
