    Hey guys,

    I'm sure a lot of you have done this hack and I had a few questions regarding it. I have a Mid-09 MBP.

    According to iFixit, my bluetooth module is located on top of the optical drive. When I replace this with the hard drive, will I still be able to set the bluetooth back up or will I lose bluetooth?

    I have a SSD drive and the drive that shipped with my comp, should I move the original drive and put the SSD there, or just put the SSD in the optical drive?

    I want to boot from the SSD, can I do this from the optical drive location? Will I still be able to use sleep mode?

    Finally, I will only have a 64 gb SSD, how do I go about booting from the SSD but keeping my User folder in the original HD?

    Don't know about bluetooth, but SSD and HDD can be placed in any configuration you want sicne they're all SATA II.
