My iMac is currently backup on my Time Capsule. I've been talking to a Apple Certified Macintosh Technician who is able to install a SSD into my mid 2011 iMac 27". The original harddrive will remain in the iMac. After the SSD has been installed, I would like to setup OS X Lion using the backup on my Time Capsule. If I do so, will the restore process place the files on the original harddrive? I would like to place all OS X files on my SSD, but some large libraries (music, pictures, eyeTV etc.) are to big to be stored on the SSD. Are there any way that I can restore my backup on the SSD but place some folders on the original HDD? Another approach is to clone my HDD to the SSD before installing it in the iMac. This required that the cloning process can exclude some folders (my large libraries). Is that possible? What will happen when the SSD is installed? How can I tell my Mac to boot from the SSD and not the HDD? It's clear that it would be a lot easier to just make a clean install, but I think that I'll wait until OS X Mountiain Lion is released.
