MacBook Pro Sierra Update takes forever!
My macbook pro was so slow, it was freezing in every 2 minutes (not literally every 2 mins but it was booting in 8 mins and apps like word were opening in 4 minutes.) so I decided to backup everything and update it. I backed up 50gbs of files in 14 hours.. and then started the sierra update. It's been 13 hours now and the installation process is only halfway through. My goal is to eventually format the harddrive an to see whether if my mac is going to get faster.
I also bought a SSD today, i will try to replace my harddrive with it, but I am not sure if my problem is only with the harddrive. I suspect that hard drive cable is broken too, since it took like ridiculous hours to install/backup things.
My question is; is this normal considering my mac is so old? If not, how can i check if my hard drive cable is broken? How can i check if my hard drive is broken? What do you suggest me to do?
I think i asked my question a bit wrong. :) So I have an SSD but, I haven't switched my hdd with it. I just bought the ssd and it waits inside of its box.
I am now in the page where Mac is in the booting phase like this one https://goo.gl/btwF8J - in my screen the only difference is that, it says 11 mins remaining. (it is been 18 hours now..)
and this is my exact model : http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ma...
english is not my mother tongue, so sorry for the misunderstandings
Is this a good question?
