    i swapped HD-A out for HD-B and copied the files from A to B before the swap. when B is now in my MBP, it doesnt recongize it. When i put B into an enclosure i can boot up my MBP from it.

    So right now i am thinking to use carbon copy cloner to copy my files/startup stuff from A to B, how exactly do i do this? is my source disk HD-A and target disk HD-B?

    when this is done i should be able to boot off HD-B (the one in the MBP)

    First of all, I'd check the partition scheme of HD B before you do anything else. Make sure it's set to GUID Partition Table (GPT) - Intel Macs, such as your MacBook Pro, require this in order to boot from a hard drive.

    Secondly, yes - HD A is the source, and HD B the target.
