    Hi,

    I ordered the OCW 120gb Mercury Pro SSD for my Macbook PRO 2010(7,1 edition), 10.6.7, and 500gb hard disk.

    What method should I use to setup the SSD for running the programs and 500gb spinning hard drive for data?

    Is this the right way:

    Take a snap shot to an external drive of the operating system in main drive(spinning) using Carbon Clone or Super Duper.

    Install SSD.

    Format SSD(HOW do i format SSDs?)

    Install disk image to SSD using CC or super duper.

    Set up SSD as bootup disk.

    THanks.

    I'd do the following:
    1) Put SSD in external hard drive enclosure
    2) Use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the disk to the SSD
    3) Install the SSD

    Then you're good.
