Hi all... I have an older 2009 MBP that has a corrupted HDD (Snow Leopard) that will not get past the Apple logo on startup. I have an [even] older HDD (10.4 Tiger) from an earlier Mac that I just found while moving and I am able to successfully boot my MBP externally from there. I do have a TimeMachine backup of the current HDD (Snow Leopard). Today I bought a new SDD and my question is, what is the best way to make my new SSD bootable with my TimeMachine backup? Since this is a secondary machine, I haven't needed to upgrade the OS in some time, but I am in need of a new project so I figured I might as well start there... Ideally I would like to put the TimeMachine backup on the SSD externally before I replace the current drive. Please note I do not have a copy of any OSX at this time... Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks.
