Restoring from external drive onto different MacBook.
I replacing an old MacBook with a newer one, and expect to use TimeMachine to move my system. Both machines have SSD's, the old one has a 500 GB and the newer one has a 1T SDD.
I assume I could:
1) Start a full backup
2) Got to bed
3) Begin restoring to the newer MacBook
4) Go to work
When I come home, I should be 100% up and running on the new Mac.
Does this make sense?
What do I need to know to restore the system onto the new MacBook?
Are there are reboots needed during installation? Might the unattended new machine go to sleep in the middle of this process?
What commands to I need to execute on the new machine?
