I want to get my girlfriend a Mini 10v for Christmas. Can I use my Time Machine backup from my 10v to install OS X on my new one? It would save a lot of steps since I have only have OS 10.5.0 on my USB thumb drive and it would save a lot of steps if it worked. Would I need to rerun Netbook Installer on it when its done restoring off the Time Machine backup?
Another possible way would be to clone my 10v's hard drive to the new one's but I don't know how to mount the 10v in Disk Utility so could do a restore to the new one from the old. I have done that before when I upgraded my Macs hard drive but that meant me taking out the hard drive and using a USB enclosure so it would show up in Disk Utility. Does anyone know how to do this easily?
