new hard drive not loading from option boot...bought a hard drive from here on ifixit... the seagate momentus 750 gig/ 7200, and the screws for the battery have five...
Rispondi a "Hard disk replacement - battery removal required?"i bought a hard drive from here on ifixit... the seagate momentus 750 gig/ 7200, and the screws for the battery have five points, not three!?! i also had missing mounting screws that i replaced from a local apple store (luckily they has a few in back)... at any rate, i tried to install the OS (snow leopard) by booting holding down option as i powered up with the new drive (not removing the battery, since the tool kit i ordered only had torx and tri point tips)... my question is why won't the drive from ifixit show in an option button boot up, and why wont the boot from cd go any further that the opening sound and apple screen? any one else have this issue?
Rispondi a "Do i need a new upper case?"is apple still covering the replacement of cracked a1181 white plastic macbooks? i know this is late in the game, but it seems to me that it was a model defect and should still be covered. the cracks have been with me since i bought the machine, and i am just finding out about the replacement deal. four years later. thanks for the help, and if you must, laugh at my question. i know it's a long shot. thanks :D
