    Hello,
    I currently boot my iMac 2007 from an external SSD with Mavericks attached via FW800.

    Can I just install this SSD in a Mac mini and boot from it?

    Or is a clean install + time machine migration better?

    Thanks for the help

    Can't you just try it on the Mini as it is ?

    yes, but it's a question for the future ... I'll buy the new mini OR (if new one is a disappointment) current one.

    Yes that will work just fine. No reason to reinstall anything.
