Putting SSD, installing High Sierra and reusing the original HDD
Hi, I did do a search of the forums to find answers but have doubts. Hope ifixit experts can help clear..
I have MBP 17" Early 2011 (not seeing this option in the 'choose device' section either), A1297, MC725LL/A. It has 750GB HDD SATA III as per the specs listed on everymac.com, and 8GB RAM.
I am planning to upgrade the RAM and the HDD with the following that I found on Amazon India.
Are the above products compatible to use?
I do not intend to replace the DVD drive, so the original HDD will be out of the MBP.
So how do I transfer the contents of the HDD to the SSD? And how do I make the new SSD the boot drive? Also I assume that I could still use the original HDD as external drive later; what would I need for this---sata to usb cable? does it also require power cable?
Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
