Hello. Sorry if this has been covered before, but I lose patience searching this forum after a couple pages of unrelated posts! Confused

I finally got my 1.66Ghz Core Duo mini the way I want it...all my software loaded, preferences set, etc. Now, Ive got that M.U.S. (Mac Upgrade Syndrome) and I'm contemplating getting a 1.83Ghz Core 2 Duo.

What I want to know is, Can I clone my hard drive using SuperDuper! and restore it onto the Core 2 Duo? Is the difference between Core Duo and Core 2 Duo going to cause any problems?

I'm pretty sure this would work with no problems, but i wondered if anyone else could offer any input on this. Have you done it? Have you upgraded your processor from a core duo to a core 2 duo, and were still able to use the hard drive as is? Please let me know! Thanks!

Just to clarify, I'm wanting to buy a completely different computer, not just change the processor. But I thought someone who had done that might be able to shed some light on the subject.

Just boot your old Mini in target disk mode, connect it to your new mini by firewire and turn on your new mini for the first time. When it boots, it'll run migration assistant for you and after an hour or so it'll be done.

So, It'll just transfer all my apps and everything to my new computer, and I'll be ready to rock? Sweet! Thanks

To boot in Target disk mode, do I just hold down the option/alt key while booting? Then It'll be obvious or what?

Do I need a special firewire cable? I guess the answer is yes, since the firewire port on both my minis is the same, and every FW cable I have has two different looking ends... I guess I'll peruse eBay to answer that question.

Will it automatically delete stuff off of the old computer? or are there options?

thanks again

Nothing will automatically be deleted from your old mini. You need a standard 6 pin FW 400 cable; should be able to get it at any electronics store. To start up a mini in FW Target Disk mode, hold down the T key when starting (see these instructions).

You don't have to manually clone if you don't want to. You can just choose the "Transfer files & settings from my old Mac" option when the setup assistant launches the very first time you turn the new Mac on. You'll just hook up the two Macs using Firewire Target Mode as others have mentioned, and OS X will do the heavy lifting. It's a piece of cake.
