Good idea

first run disk utilities, then defrag disk, then connect ssd to computer via usb external drive, then clone disk or install disk into machine and then insert system disk and boot from system disk and hold down c key.

Macbook Air 13.3" Not recognizing internal ssd

I use an external drive to boot from with Techtools 7 installed. I would test permissions, and then file integrity and see what it finds.

If the OS is corrupt it will prevent bootup. It could also be a failing SSD. First try Holding down "D" immediately after the dong sound and the Apple hardware test will start. Use the arrow key to choose your language.

Follow the instructions and when it is done it will show an error code if there is a problem. Post that code and I can give you more info on the problem. Chris

Clone mac drive

As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Why does my SSD cause the beach ball of death on OSX?

Try a NRAM/PRAM/SMC reset.

The best thing is to get a copy of OSX 10.8 3, load it to a flash drive or burn to disk, then secure erase the SSD with the erase tool from Crucial, do a fresh install of OSX.

Then do a reset of these again, its the best way to get the system working with no problems.

That is a good SSD.

Just google NRAM/PRAM/SMC RESET and read how for your Macbook pro.

Then get a small external drive for backups, so you can secure erase the drive when needed.

Remember Apple turns off TRIM when its not one of their SSD's, so you need to give the drive time to use garbage collection.

You can Google TRIM enabler, but if you have any problems after installing it and turning it on, just turn it off.

I have no problems with it.

A new update for 10.8.3 is coming soon to public, beta 12D76 is working great.

Please tell me if I can install this SSD drive in my Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop. What is the difference between SSD SATA II and III

A sata 3 SSD on a sata 2 PC will slow down slightly to sata 2 speeds, and vice versa. But this is usually acceptable since any current model SSD is much much faster than a normal hard drive so even installing a slower model SSD will be a big improvement. Its analogous to a porsche 911 and a volkswagen beetle. The 911 is faster than the beetle but both are much faster than horses.

your laptop has a normal hard drive. Most SSD's except apple SSD's are the same size and have the same connectors so 99% of the time it will work. you can see pictures of the SSD and compare it with your current hard drive

Hi, I purchase a Mac Air when they first came out and have 4 GB Ram and 64 GB Flash SSD HD. I would like to know whether I can purchase the 256 GB Flash SSD and upgrade my harddrive capacity.

It should work as long as the SSD is physically the same size so it will fit in the mac. Before buying the SSD I would check with a local computer repair shop as to whether the mac os can handle that certain SSD. I think it should work fine.
