Can anyone confirm if the MX200 SSD works in a late 2008 Aluminum Macbook? I formatted and installed Yosemite 10.10.4 onto an MX200 and put it into the Macbook. I can boot the Macbook from the disk only when I zap the PRAM. Once the Macbook is running OS X, I can "Restart..." the Macbook with no problem. But if I "Shut Down..." the Macbook, I can't boot past the grey screen with the Apple logo and an empty progress bar below it. It just sits there, for hours, with no progress. Then, if I kill the Macbook and zap the PRAM, the Macbook will boot up quickly without any problems.
Anyone else experiencing this? I would like to be able to shut the computer down and start it again when I please, without having to reset the PRAM everytime. Are the MX200 and the 2008 Aluminum Macbook simply not compatible in this regard?
