Thanks, Mike! Hoping to hear if the installation thru PCI slot is even better. I appreciate your response.

comment Migration Tool VS CCC
This detailed response is much appreciated. Especially the Conclusion, where the first sentence identifies my goal. I can install the OS in the evening, and let migration do its thing till the morning. It seems to kill two birds with one stone, not just increasing the drive, but freshening up the OS to the original install.

comment Migrating to new iMac, what does Migration Assistant actually migrate?
Thanks, Matt. In my next life, I will keep install discs and install software safe, along with their serial numbers / sign in.

comment Migrating to new iMac, what does Migration Assistant actually migrate?
@matthewpavkov - In cases where I no longer have the install disc or serial numbers, how do I move manually? A number of applications will act as if they were just installed and ask for a serial. In my case, all I want is to swap the boot drive for a bigger one, and not lose 4 years worth of purchased software.

comment Install Mavericks on new drive?
Much thanks. I didn't know if the 'accepting' the update would just over-write the OS or if it would allow the choice of startup disc. This answer set me straight.
