My MacBook Pro isn't recognising my new HD replacement
MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 2.5GHz Intel Core i5
My standard 500GB Apple HD recently died on my a few weeks ago, coming up with the dreaded question mark on startup.
So I did a bit of research and bought a new one. It's a Western Digital 750GB, 7200 rpm hard drive, and using one of the iFixit guides I replaced the broken one with the WD. But I still get the question mark. So I tried Internet Recovery, and that didn't work either, because Disk Utility doesn't recognise that there is any internal HD.
I'm not sure of the new HD's formatting. I have a backup of my system before it died (Mac OSX Mavericks) but when I went to restore it, again, my computer said there was no HD to restore it to. And it's the same story when I went to re-install OSX. What could have happened? I should also note that my HD has been replaced numerous times.
Is this a good question?
