New internal hdd problems
I just purchased a new Samsung HM641JI hard drive to replace my old 250gb fujitsu hd.
The problem is, if I put the new samsung hdd inside and try to do a clean install of snow leopard, the setup always hangs at "extracting essentials" and I have to keep the shutdown button pressed to close my laptop.
I thought I have a ram problem or that my dvd is busted but that's not the case because I inserted the samsung hdd in an enclosure, connected it via usb and the install went just fine.
After the setup was over I rebooted a couple of times (still in usb enclosure) and everything was fine but after I inserted it in my mac everything went crazy: excruciating slow boot and runtime. I repeated the process twice to be sure.
Is this a good question?
