I have an Macbook pro 2012 without retina and a built-in HDD. Now I want to additionally use an SSD with this kit: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/DDAMBS0GB/
Basically it's a media bay, replacing the optical drive.
I already have a SSD drive: Corsair Force 3
The final setup should look like this:
- Macbook with dualboot into Mac OS 10.8 and Windows 7 Bootcamp
- OS X should be booted from the SSD and run primarily from the SSD
- Windows should use, but not exclusively utilize the HDD. The HDD should be partitioned with 200GB for Windows and 500GB for Mac OS (approx.)
- Windows should boot from the HDD
- Mac OS should natively mount the Mac OS partition of the HDD into my home and index it automatically (probably, messing with /etc/fstab should do the job if this file exists?)
Now the questions:
- How do I do this? :-)
- If I'm informed correctly, the Mac has a recovery partition natively nested in the HDD. What about that when it comes to a recovery installation?
- This tutorial uses "Super Duper!" to copy the Mac HDD to another HDD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U5CroEpbyU&feature=related
. I guess this is not native HDD since the drive sizes should differ in almost every upgrade scenario. Does this one also moves my recovery partition and will it work on drives with different sizes?
Thanks for any tips or input!
