Easy

Mein Problem

When is a dead hard drive not a dead hard drive? When it's a dead HD cable! Apple store genius diagnosed my blinking folder on startup as a dead HD, and wanted $170 to fix it. I said no, I'd fix it myself, and bought a new HD at Micro Center. Went home, installed it – no help. Put the original HD in a USB enclosure and booted my Mac off it, and Googled the problem. Found out that HD cables often go bad. Ordered from iFixIt.

Meine Reparatur

10 minutes... super easy. Just followed the guides.

Mein Rat

A screwdriver with a magnetic head makes placing those tiny screws much easier.
