Putting spare hard drive from PPC into Mac Pro
#1044566 - 22/04/13 10:48 PM
Hi guys, I have backed up all the data on a 2nd hard drive in my old PPC
to an external drive and emptied it and would now like to move it into my Mac Pro. Is
there anything I need to do other than the physical swap? The PPC is on 10.4.11 and the
Mac Pro is now on 10.7.5. I assume that because I can plug my external drive into either
machine then the same principle would apply with the internal one but would just like to
make certain before doing so.

Provided you never want to use it as a boot drive, you simply put it in the caddy and off
you go. If you ever want to boot from it, you will need to change the partition map
to GUID, ( & install 10.5.8 as a minimum system for early Intel machines. Later
machines will require a higher OS ).
