What do I need to do BEFORE installing a new SSD on my Mac?
I have the iFixit kits ready to install a new SSD and 16GB RAM into my Mac.
Before I go ahead and do this, obviously I need to back up my files.
What I’m not clear about is whether I need to have the operating system available on a separate drive when I start it up again afterwards, and if so, how I go about doing this. Or, is the OS contained within ROM within the Mac separate from the HDD.
Otherwise, am I effectively inserting a blank SSD into a computer which will have no idea how to start up?
Esta é uma boa pergunta?
