Why won't my MacBook Pro boot after HDD replacement
My MacBook Pro 17 (mid 2007) was experiencing some overheating problems. Before I could get it repaired, it locked up. I got a gray screen and a series of small horizontal, parallel lines below the cursor.
I read on this and other forums that I needed to replace the hard drive, which I did with a 500 gb, 5400 rpm drive. I did so, successfully, (So I thought). After a few problems booting off of the Mac OSX Snow Leopard DVD, it still won't boot up. I just ran a repair disk from the DVD and everything appears to be OK, except I have an "Updating boot support partitions for the volume is required" message.
What did I do wrong? Is there another issue? Thanks!
Is this a good question?
