Default SSD Conversion - 12-29-2012, 08:06 AM

So just a few quick questions...

I'm currently perfecting my 10v snow leopard setup, as it is going to be my main machine for a while, and was looking to upgrade my hard drive to a SSD.


1) If I were to do this, should I go with a 128 GB or a 256 GB?

2) COULD I reformat the SSD to Mac OSX Extended (Journaled) using disk utility and the included USB to Hard drive cable, and then simply reinstall snow leopard via a USB thumb drive and (during the install) restore from a time machine backup of my old hard drive (the one I originally hackintoshed)

3) ASSUMING that ^ goes well, could I then reformat and install Windows 7 on my new 160 GB hard drive and essentially have a SSD Mac and a Windows 7 Netbook that boots from the external drive?

Thanks in Advance!!!
