    So, I may be misunderstanding something here, but I thought I could do the following:

    1. Buy SSD > install
    2. Pop in Snow Leopard and do a fresh install on the new SSD
    3. Connect external hard drive and pull over what ever data I wanted from the old HD

    BUT, that's not working. I am getting a blue screen with a folder and a question mark. I've tried most of the boot up commands you can do and none work.

    Help!!!!!!

    Many thanks!

    Couple questions... are you inserting the SL disk then holding C while booting? If so, what happens?

    Is the SL disk either a retail SL disk or the grey one that came with your specific machine? If it is a grey disk from another model it will not work.
