    Hi- it's been a long time since I posted and I missed you all.

    OK- here it is:

    Have old HDD in external.
    New SSD is in computer.
    Using disk utility to clone from old HDD in the external to new SSD inside the comp.
    Here is a pic.

    Is this what I want?

    I originally backed up to time machine, put new SSD in, ran comp holding command-r but got the "no enter" sign. So comp is running from the external, copying itself to SSD inside comp.

    Thank you all...
