I have just bought myself a new 15" MacBook Pro :).
Now i am wanting to put an ssd hard drive that i have on my windows machine,into it in place of the original hard drive,and at a later date will get an optibay and put the original back in place of the superdive.
I dont have a caddy to put the ssd into,but i do have a old hardrive that i can put into an enclosure..if that would help?
What i would like to know is whats the best option i have of getting lion onto the ssd drive.
Many thanks
Ian

1. Put the SSD into an enclosure, format it in HFS+ with a GUID partition table.

2. Use carbon copy cloner to clone your current HD. Swap away.

3. Have a nice cold one and pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
