comment Reinstalling Everything after HD Replacement
That's what I had in mind initially, I think it's the easiest way. The problem is that I can't find any similar docks, cables, or cases here in my city, and I'm not sure if it would be worth traveling to buy any of these. Also, it's not as cheap as it is in the US, and I don't plan doing this again — it would be used only once probably. Yes, I, myself, am going to do the replacement :-) what an adventure. I bought a new Time Capsule, and I'm going to take the old Time Capsule HD off, and put it in my iMac.

I created a install USB drive (I had the Lion install image here), it should speed things up a little since this drive with the full image is far more complete than the 1GB created by Apple's recovery tool (won't depend on the internet too much). Thanks for your help.

Thanks a lot for the deep explanation. About using TC for Time Machine backups and external hard drive, yeah it works fine, and I don't find it messy at all. Anyways, the idea behind the disk image was to avoid reinstalling the system, I'd like to simply say "clone it back" and avoid the detailed install part. However I think you convinced me to use the Time Machine backup to restore things. Unfortunately HDs are not that cheap here (I'm outside the US) so I'll probably keep my data in one place only during the transition.
