Is there anything special about Santa Rosa /Penryn MacBooks?
My spare MacBook 2.2 GHz is, as I found out while exchanging its display, a Santa Rosa /Penryn model (10_2007).
When I replaced its harddrive with the one from my "normal" device (11_2006, 1.83 GHz), Santa Rosa/Penryn refused to recognize it. Although the display flashed up, the apple icon as the little wheel failed to appear.
As this procedure was repeated over and over again, I suspect that Santa Rosa/Penryn MacBooks reject harddrives from other Apple devices, even if they have equal passwords and admin rights.
Is that really so and why is it so?
Is this a good question?
