Migrating Drive From A Late 2013 rMBP To A 2017 Touchbar MBP?
I'm migrating away from my Late 2013 Retina MBP to my brand new Mid 2017 Touchbar MBP
I have the old SSD drive in an external USB enclosure. The drive has two partitions – a large Mac one and a smaller Windows one
As opposed to doing the whole migration-assistant stuff, I'd like to simply clone the drive over to my new machine – copying everything, both partitions, from the old to the new
I'm wondering two things:
First, what's the simplest way to go about that? If I were to startup the new mac in recovery mode, attach the external SSD, and do a restore from it... would that achieve what I'm looking for? Is there a pathway to that?
Second, should I expect any problems to arise from the old system residing in the new machine? For instance, the old system didn't have a touchbar; would the OS (I think it's running Sierra) get confused by the new hardware?
Thanks in advance!
