    Hey all,

    I have an early 2011 MBP 15" that I'm going to be outfitting with a 128gb Samsung 830 SSD. What I plan on doing is replacing the dvd drive with a hard disk bay, moving my 500gb hd over there, and putting my new SSD in the boot drive.

    What I'm wondering is what's the best way to go about installing everything when ML comes out? I'm thinking maybe:

    1. Download and install ML on the current 500 gb drive.
    2. Time Machine the drive.
    3. Install the SSD.
    4. Install ML onto the SSD, then restore from Time Machine.
    5. Format the 500gb drive.

    If I want to keep my SSD for OS X and apps, and my hard drive for everything else, how would I do this? :confused:
