Cloning from one machine to another

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to clone the drive with an existing install of OSX and put on to a totally different machine?


For example, could I clone my HP pro book install and run it on a gigabyte desktop? I am thinking of doing a new build but want to avoid installing all the additional software beyond the OS


I am talking about 10.75 specifically but am curious to know if its possible with any OSX install?


I assume at the very least you would have to replace the extra folder along with any dsdts for the specific machine you are moving the cloned drive to, but are there any other steps that have to be done?
