Wanted: Hard Drive for 2010 Macbook pro

Wanted:
Hard Drive for 2010 Macbook pro

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I just fixed a Macbook Pro that I got for free because it was supposed to be fried...well..it's not anymore. It didn't come with a Hard Drive and to format the thing over to HSF from a windows computer is such a pain.

Basically I would either like to borrow a hard drive or buy one for dirt cheap just so I can see if it'll boot up. When I turn it on now, the screen has a folder with a question mark on it because there's no HDD, I don't know if it'll even boot past that yet.

I'd like to sell this whole thing after I'm done making sure it works properly.

Thanks biggrin.gif

Try hooking it up via a desktop sata cable

Delete the NTFS partition and volumes completely so its a unpartitioned clean drive.
Then put it in the Macbook along with the OSX DVD or USB Key and format it for HSF.

Hook "it" up? What? Hook what up to what.

Because I don't know if it's actually working or not. I can sell it as possible DOA for pocket change or I can confirm it's in fully working order and sell it for a decent price.

The above poster has said it correctly. Just delete all partitions and reinstall OSX.

Darnit. Someone told me it wouldn't be that easy. So I just stick a windows disk in, once it goes into the boot thing, delete all the partitions, take HDD back out, plop it in the macbook along with an OSX disc and wallah?

You could just connect it to your computer and boot normally. Then in Windows, select that drive, delete the partition table, create new partitions, format and that's it.
I'm quite sure that would work perfectly.

Well, once I get a hard drive for a laptop I shall do that. What about the little pins on the side of the drive to hold it in?
