How can I check my current multibeast settings in existing build? I'm looking to buy a new hard drive, and I can't remember which options I chose in Multibeast when setting up my machine the last time around.

Thanks

Why re-install on the new HDD?
Install HDD, run SuperDuper or CCC and clone to the new HDD, install Chimera, remove or reformat old drive (or keep as a bootable backup)

Unless you just want to install from scratch for some reason, you should follow Going Bald's suggestion and clone the installation over to your new drive, then run the standalone Chimera installer pointed at the new drive. I've done it this way and it works well.

You can select only Chimera in MultiBeast under boot loaders or you can download and use the stand alone installer. Either way works fine.
