I would like to make an exact copy of my old 250 gb HDD (not installed), and clone to a new 240 gb SSD (installed).
The old HDD is dual booted with equal partition scheme, rEFIt booting OSX Snow Leopard/Ubuntu 12.10.
Would I be better off cloning to an external drive then restoring the image from external to internal drive (requiring internal drive swap)? Or is there a way I could boot from the old HDD via usb then format and restore the installed SSD with the HDD image from within disk utility? The machine is a 2009 macbook with OSX Mavericks installed.
Any advice would be appreciated!
