    I am about to build my next hackintosh and I will be installing the OS on a SSD. I would like to put the old drive in and copy the data across to the new HDD. Will I have traumas by having 2 drives both with a working OS on them. How can I get around this problem.

    Thanks

    John

    There shouldn't be a problem with having two drives with OS X in one system. You are only booting to one at a time.
