Hoping some one can help me , over the last few days my MacBook has been crashing while ripping cd's , Disk utility recovered errors on the HDD but it's still showing up Red and warning the disk is about to fail , copying all my music and word / excel doc's to a usb HDD as I type.
I figure I can go buy another 512 gig HDD , or larger ? and fit it but what I'm not sure about is how I will reinstall osx ( 10.9.2 ) .
If I buy a usb drive big enuff to do a time machine back up will it restore that to a new HDD ? or can I create a reboot disk that will reinstall osx .
I query the time machine because in disk utility it says only restore to the same machine
Thanks in advance
