Why do you want to do this?


The original is broken and i wan't an "cheap" replacement ;)


Can you explain what broke. We might be able to salvage the SSD.


The SSD getting hot but the Macbook is showing a blank screen. After some tests i got it bootet with the SSD. The Diagnostic is showing that there is a "unknown device". I've replaced the SSD with a used from Ebay
