Today I received new hardware to upgrade next system:
  • Intel E8400
  • GA-P35-DS4
  • 250 HDD SATA
  • 4gb DDR 2
This is going to be upgraded with next items:
  • Intel i5 2500k
  • GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
  • 128gb SSD Samsung 830
  • 8gb DDR 3
Idea is to have a clean install. I already have a Time Machine backup of my system (10.8.2) so I can have all my documents once new system is running.

Only question I have: what is the best way to install a clean OSX 10.8?
(I already restored a copy of purchase OSX 10.8 to a external USB HDD.)

Should I install chameleon to this same USB HDD and then reboot-install OSX

Or can I better use a boot CD (for example myhack) to start my PC and then install OSX from the USB HDD?

And last question, does this new motherbord need a own DSDT file?
