    Hi guys,

    I have a 2nd gen MB and recently got a 5th gen MB (white) with NVidia adapter. I moved my HDD from 2nd gen to 5th hoping all would be fine. Although system seems to work fine, I have problems on boot (command line text appears). I made HDD verification with DU, all seems to be fine. There are many problems with Disk Permissions and they can not be somehow repaired.

    What would you suggest to move my HDD in the best way? Shall I try to solve boot problem? Or shall I just format the HDD on 5th and restore the system with Time Machine or sth?

    cheers!

    N.

    Move your data off, wipe it, clean install.

    Why did you want a SMALLER hard drive?!
