New Internal HD... Mavericks?
on Mar 21, 2014 at 8:53:55 pm

Hi All,

I have a Mac with the following profile:

Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro5,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Number Of Processors: 2
Total Number Of Cores: 8

I have an internal HD 1GB that's starting to show signs of trouble, and it's pretty full. So I purchased another HD that's 2GB in size. The installation was easy. Now I'm trying to clone the older drive to the newer one. I purchased Carbon copy cloner. It works great so far.

My question is I'm currently running Snow leopard 10.6.8 on the old drive. But I'd like to upgrade to maverick. Would that be a smart idea? Should I do it after I clone the old drive to the new one? And advice would be appreciated

I would do a clean install of mavericks on the new HD. Then I would drag/drop anything I needed from the old HD rather than migrate everything. It's good practice to do this, even if it results in you having to install plugins, drivers, etc again. You have the benefit of knowing everything you're working with is up to date and not bringing over anything buggy that you don't want from the original HD.

Good luck!
