I am just having fun exploring all the possibilities here, and I would like to attempt an install of OSX on a spare 8GB SSD
that I am not using.
I have searched the forum for a definitive answer, but have not found anything concrete. I have found where someone, attempting to install on an 8GB SSD
, first installed to an external hard drive. Someone else in that string suggested an SDHC instead of an external HD.
Question: Can I first install OSX to a 16GB SDHC; do my editing there (XSlimmer) to reduce the size of the install to the point where I can get upgraded to 10.5.6 in less than the 8GB limit; then use Disk Utility to do a "restore" to the 8GB internal SSD
? I am assuming that I will have to run DellEFI after moving the OSX install from the SDHC to the 8GB SSD
. Will that work ? ? ?
Thanks for your help.
