How to Install a New Hard Drive in a Macbook Pro

ever hard drive you? I have. Here's my story:

I put my late 2009 MacBook Pro to sleep late one Saturday night. Since it was late at night I had the time or patience to let my computer completely to sleep and have a little flashing lights in the front, which means that he went to sleep. I jumped the gun and turn my computer on its right side, hard drive and still vrti.Definitivno NO, NO, according to Apple's website. You must allow the hard disk drive to spin down and wait for the light pulse.

The next morning I woke up, ready to dive into the new web site I was developing for my photography business. My Macbook Pro wakes up without incident, but I thought everything was ok. Then Adobe Lightroom is to save the file I am working on. He said he needed a place to store files I am working on. I thought, "you place an idiot, this is called a hard disk." And again as I do when things do not work well, and what I saw next is seared into my um.Strašna FLASHING folder and question mark. This means, in Apple speak, something is wrong. Later I would Apple "Genius" to tell me that was my HDD. He wanted almost $ 200 with taxes to fix it and still would not be able to recover my data without sending my computer in the service of data recovery. No way!

So, I did it myself and got all my data back for less than $ 100. Here's how:

1 Order a replacement HDD from Newegg or Amazon. I had a Seagate 500GB SATA 2.5 7200 RPM, and so I replaced it with the same drive.

2 It would also saonice.Saonice is basically HDD enclosure, which allows you to create your own external HDD. Amazon is also a good place for them.

7 Pull the power cord from the right side of the drive carefully.

8 Remove the four retaining screws from the drive and place on one side.

9 Unpack your new hard disk and screw the 4 screws on the new drive.

10 Attach the cable to connect the new HDD.

11 Does the carrier.

12 Put the lid back on my MacBook Pro and replace the screws.

13 Turn on your computer and press the power button.

14 Insert your Mac OS install disk. Hold down the power until the computer shuts down and then press it to turn it on again, while holding the C key on the keyboard.

15 You will get the screen to install OS X. Click the Disk Utility menu and select the new HDD. Select delete and create partitions as you wish. I only use one. The name of this new partition Macintosh HD.

16 Now you have a formatted disk. Return to the main menu and follow the instructions to install OS X on your new hard disk. You have the option to install the Time Machine backup at this point.

17 Once the OS is reinstalled, plug in your sled in my old HDD and plug the USB cable to your computer. If the mounts and shows up in your Finder have a good chance to recover some or all of your data. Simply drag files from your old to your new HDD.

and that's it. It's pretty simple. But there are some things to watch out for.

Notes:

If the backup from Time Machine, keep in mind that you will need to use the install disk that came with any OS you last used. If you have Leopard installed on my old HDD, you can restore using Leopard or Tiger. You must use the Snow Leopard install disk.
