Hi, sorry if the topic seems old and "basic" for some, but it's my very first recovery from Time Machine, so it's all new to me... I'll probably need a step-by-step guide (even though some stuff... I've already done it) I have a Late2008 MacBookPro for which I bought an SSD drive, to replace the old one. I have already formatted it with the GUID partition, as explained in many manuals and forums. I'm currently doing a Time Machine Backup of the most recent system configuration (OS X 10.6.8, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB RAM). Then I'll have to get down to business...! Can I just swap the new SSD in and just recover everything from my external Time Machine disc? I've read that Late2008 MacBookPros can't do a recover from an USB drive, is that right? Any help/suggestions? Feel free to ask anything you might need to know... thanks a lot! A'
