How Durable/Tough is the Harddrive Ribbon Cable in the MacBook Pro!?
I just opened up the innards of my $800 dollar MacBook Pro bumping slightly into cables on the mother board while gently trying to pry the old ram out for a half hour then reinstalling the new ram. I also gently yanked the harddrive ribbon cable while forgetting it was still connected to the harddrive (but don't think I damaged it) and plugged in and screwed in the new ssd. It's downloading the Internet recovery files so with fingers crossed I will be able to reformat the new ssd.
I'm being ocd by the fact that I pulled on the ribbon connector forgetting it needs to be removed to take out the hard drive. I was forgetting that it was still hooked to the harddrive AND THIS was my biggest worry while reviewing the installation videos. It's got me worried that I may have damaged it. Assurance is kindly appreciated!?
Is this a good question?
