Reformat the new drive, use your working drive or create a bootable installer USB drive to boot up the system, then after reformatting & installing a new OS use Apples migration assistant to move your stuff over. Here's how to create the installer thumb drive: How to create a bootable macOS Sierra installer drive

But! Even before doing all of this it's likely you need a new HD SATA cable as they will appear to work but when stressed doing large file movements fail to work cleanly. Follow this IFIXIT guide: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Early 2011 Hard Drive Cable Replacement and use this newer version of the cable: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2012) Hard Drive Cable

Should the OP be using cleaning software rather than Migration Asst? Repair partition?


@giggsy Dan is right but try to do that before spending the money. If it works, dont bother spending it but if it doesnt, i suggest you follow dan as he seems to know whats up


Use the cable for the 2012 13" machine rather than the 2011.


@mayer - Apples disk utility should do. Doing a few ones - zero passes might help.

Input / Output error means there is a part of your existing hard drive that can no longer be read.

For a quick short cut, from Finder select Go --> Go to Folder.

Enter "/Library/Messages/PlugIns/AIM.impreferencepane/Contents/Resources/Italian.lproj/"

in the box without the quotes.

Move AIMPreferencesView.nib to Trash and empty the Trash.

You can reinstall AIM on the new hard drive.

Also, I don't think you need Italian anyway.

I've already tried that didn't work every time I search for it can't find it now


Ok. In that case.

Open Terminal. This is in Applications --> Utilities --> Terminal.

At the terminal prompt, type in

'sudo rm -rf /Library/Messages/PlugIns/AIM.impreferencepane/Contents/Resources/Italian.lproj/AIMPreferencesView.nib'

without the quotes. This will force removal of this.

Before using super duper again, run Applications --> Utilities --> Disk Utility

Use the Repair Permissions, then Repair Disk.


I'll give it a shot thanks heaps


Still doesn't work :/


How about dragging the entire AIM from Applications to the Trash and emptying the Trash?
