    How to transfer to new Hard Drive
    I understand that this has been answered many times before, but I want to be ABSOLUTELY sure that I do this right the first time.
    I have a eMac that runs pretty well with OSX 10.5.8 installed. It is installed on a 160 GB internal drive. I have a 500 GB drive that was in a MacBook running OSX 10.6. I erased the 500 GB drive, installed it in a USB external carrier from OWC. The eMac will not run Snow Leopard, not Intel capable.

    End Game:
    I want to transfer my 160GB to the 500GB drive, then swap out the 160GB and install the 500GB in the emac, thereby not interfering with the operation of the emac. How do I do this? Use the Migration Assistant? Ghost? What?

    I appreciate any help with this issue.

    Using Mac OS X on anything but a genuine Apple computer is violating the Apple license. No one here is going to assist.
