How to format and install OSX on new SSD without internet
I installed a SSD in my 2010 Macbook pro. I put the old hard drive in in an external case and the mac booted from there when turned on. Disk Utility is up on the screen. I am unclear on how to proceed. I need to format the new SSD and I want to copy OSX from the old hard drive to the new drive so that the mac boots from the new drive. I do not want to use the internet on the 2010 computer that I am working on (it hasn’t been used for years (bad battery that i recently replaced) and i just want a dedicated word processing machine. I hoped that it would be possible to just copy over the OSX and contents of old drive through Disk Utility.
