    Guide is for OS X Lion, but the process is no different for Mountain Lion.

    ...and don't overlook the "Windows, Linux & Others on the Mac" subforum as well as Apple's Boot Camp section on its support site.

    thanks for the responses, I just want to make sure I get all the hardware right.

    I got a sweet deal on a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB, got 1 of those.

    I plan to get a USB 3.0 HD enclosure for it, and i just want to make sure that the connection internal for the enclosure is Sata3?

    please confirm. thanks.

    Only you know whether the (external) enclosure you intend to buy has a SATA III internal connection or not; check with the seller or manufacturer's website for details.

    I would check if the SSD you purchased needs a SATA II or III connection & proceed from there. You might wish to google the SSD's exact name to check compatibility with the enclosure you are considering (it's always good to check other people's experiences).

    Good luck, it will also be a great learning experience.
