    I bought an SSD for my old 2007 macbook pro a look like I will have o keep i longer than expected due to MOT ail of car and repair costs.

    Anyway I an SSD and (stupidly) tried command + R.
    Im used o my 2009 unibody.

    I have a TM backup of the HDD, just want put on the SSD.

    So is target mode, then do a TM import the bet way?

    As I for got recovery not work had take the pro apart twice at work today.
    To swap drives.
    Oh and no other macs at work.
