    Sorry if this has been asked before. I tried to use the search but couldnt find the info I was looking for.

    I what I would like to do is Clone the internal hard drive of my Mac Pro (I believe its a Mac Pro 1,1. 2.66 dual core Xeon), and use the clone in the current model Mac Pro Dual core 2.66 thats out now.

    I need to have both machines running everything the same as both my studio's are in two different locations.

    I was gonna use Carbon Copy cloner for this. I'm running leopard OS 10.5.8 but will upgrade to Snow Leopard if I have to as i know the Current machine come with snow leopard and wont run on leopard. (or will they?)

    Also i wont be able to have the two machines together as the other one is being purchased in another country. I just want to get them running identical without instaling and authorising everything again individualy.

    Any idea if this will work? Or is there something else I should try?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated. :)

    Cool, thanks for the reply :)
    I wasnt sure if the new machine had different firmware that prevented that.

    Does anyone know if some Logic pluggins will have a problem authorising on the new machine even though theyre cloned?

    I know a few pluggins only let you license for use on a single machine, and you have to contact the and buy another license if you want to use it on another machine.

    Will I still have to do that?
