Default Transferring to new 3DS: when do I put in a new, bigger SD card?

If I am upgrading from an original 3DS to a new 3DS XL, at what point can I replace the included 4GB card with a larger 32GB card?

Can I replace the card before I even turn the new system on for the first time? Or does it need to be turned on first because the included card already has information on it that needs to be read?

Thanks,
John

you can already change to a higher capacity card even before you do the system transfer
