faulty motherboard damaged harddrive?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had a faulty motherboard in my macbook pro. My harddrive seems to function fine in osx, yet when I install windows through bootcamp I get wifi and performance issues? Is my hard drive damaged? Could a reformat fix this?

Sounds like driver issues. Why would you think the hard drive is damaged with those symptoms? Knowing that it works perfectly fine in OSX pretty much says it all.

i just don't see how it could be simply be driver/compatibility issues, knowing the very limited hardware range for macbooks. it just seems so unlikely.

is it possible the motherboard in some way created disk errors that are affecting this? ie affected the efi or something like that?

any mac experts out there want to chime in?

Its more likely that the wifi module is damaged than a damaged hard disk

it functions fine in osx though.

is it possible the firmware was altered to mess up windows installations, but not affect osx performance at all?
