Upgrading Hard drive in a Macbook Pro A1160 with a Seagate Hybrid

by ojdollarch

My Problem

The old hard drive was absolutely filled - No place for change of Mac OS X Version

My Fix

The repair went very well - Did not use any Disk Cloning tools Just Disk Utilities and Time Machine

My Advice

Just format your new drive with Mac OS X Disk Utilities as a Bootable Partition - Do a restore from Time Machine to Your New Drive - Test it as You Boot Your new drive from a USB or Firewire atachment - If it is going well - Swap Your Physical Drives
