Question: Clean Install of SSD in a MacBook Pro Mid 2112
I'm getting more confused the more I read. I know this is easy, but can someone give me a line by line instructions to install a Crucial MX 300 525 GB SSD in this machine? The easiest most reliable way to do this. I want a clean install of El Capitan or Sierra. I'm using El Capitan right now and I have the install app copied to a thumb drive. And does Sierra run or load any faster than El Capitan? I want to keep the current HDD for a backup. Appreciate any help, sorry to rehash.
