MacBook 2007 Hard Drive Failure, how do your replace
I have a faulty hard drive that needs to be replaced for my 2007 macbook. I am looking at the following steps:
1. Purchase new hard drive
2. Remove old one and replace with new one
3. Format new one
4. Add operating system
5. Copy data from old to new
Need help with steps 4 and 5. I do have Snow Leopard Install disks, assuming this is all I need. for step 4.
How about step 5, what tools are needed? Do I need to power=up the external HD or just connect to USB. I have seen a number of posts here.
Is this a good question?
