Hello.
I installed 4 GB of memory into my white 13" macbook. I have cloned (SuperDuper!) my current internal hard drive and I want to replace it with a 500GB hard drive. I am upgrading this macbook so that I can run Windows (using Parallels).
I have done quite a bit of research but I still have a couple of questions.
I know that I need to format my hard drive when I get it installed. I will then use SuperDuper! (in reverse to clone the new drive from the original clone). But do I need to partition the new hard drive as I am going to be using Windows on it or doesn't that matter?
Any help would be appreciated.
thanks,
Sharla
