    Recently bought a Mac pro and have not done anything to it besides set it up. I just purchased a 512gb ssd and want to start new off the ssd. I don't mind erasing everything off the 1 tb hdd because I don't have any files, besides lion existing on the hdd. What is the easiest way to do this? Thanks!!

    Start up the Mac on the 1TB, download carbon copy cloner or a similar application then clone the hard drive on to the SSD. Restart and boot using SSD, use Disk Utility to erase the 1TB.
