Re: Speed up Imac 24" with bootable SSD

I am curious as to what advice you get as I would like to do the same thing. I did make a bootable clone of my internal HD on an external FW800 hard drive and the boot time was noticeably longer.  I suspect that was due to the FW speed.  Is FW as fast as the internal connection?

I am wondering if anyone offers a service to replace the internal drive with a SSD or if it can be done at home with reasonable effort.  I think the cloning process works fine, but suspect the drive needs to be mounted internally to get the speeds dsesired.
