    Hi All,

    What I already did:
    - initialized the SSD and made a partition on the SSD via USB connector
    - cloned my HD with SuperDuper
    - changed the internal HD for the SSD
    - rebooted (cleared RAM)

    Got a white screen with mouse pointer, no possibility to chose start-up disk (via option key at start-up.

    I have a
    - MacBook Pro 5,5 (mid 2009) with latest OS, EFI 1.7,
    - SSD Samsung 840 EVO 500GB

    I read a lot of threads about compatibility, but can not find a answer that helps. Can anyone share a best practice or opinion about the configuration?

    Hope someone can help! Thanks!

    Personally I would just put the SSD in and do a clean install of OSX.

    Then just transfer important things I needed via USB from the old drive to the new.
