Hello,

 

I solved the problem replacing the hard drive SATA cable, I ordered it from Parts 4 repair.com, saving a lot of money compared to EU stores.

 

Thank you for support.

Re: Cloned MacBook on Crucial M550 1TB is unreadable

Hello,

 

I still have issues with his harddrive.

 

I use a MacBook Pro 13 inch Mid 2012 model. The harddrive is still unreadable whenever I plug it directly on the sata end of my macbook. I am only able to read off the SDD when I plug into a USB external enclosure.

Everytime I plug it back into my Mackbook, the system does not recognize any harddrive, but when I plug back into the external enclosure, it reads easy. I am also able to boot from the SDD when plugged into the external exclosure.

 

I am looking at the option of replacing the harddrive SATA cable, can you advice what exact item this is from the  parts 4 repair.com website?

 

Regards,

 

Femi
