Re: Migrate to new Mac Mini with SSD & HDD

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.

My understanding of the progression at this time is the following

1. Set up new Mac Mini as a new Mac and add a user account.

2. Load super duper ( mypreferred backup software) backup the HDD to an external drive and then and clone the Hdd to the SSD using a USB to sata cable

3. Install the SSD into the Mini and follow OWC instructions to set up as a separate drive( not fusion)

4. Run Disc utility and format the HDD

5. Run migration assistant to transfer users and Apps to SSD

At this point it gets fuzzy- can I use migration assistant again to transfer the data files, or do I need to handle this manually?
