New Hard Drive -> Installation takes too long/Drive access too slow
i now have the preinstalled hard drive 250,06 GB (Hitachi) in my Mac Book Pro A1286 (Mid 2009 Unibody).
I now want to replace my Hard Drive with the Western Digital Scorpio Black 500 GB/7200rpm.
Now, put it in and format the HD with GUID, MacOS Journaled Extended. All is ok. The installation runs and at ca. 60 percent the Installation seems to "sleep". The installation takes 5 (FIVE!!!) Hours to complete.
If i want to work with OS 10.6, but every access to the HD (open a application, open a finder window), the OS freezes for 5-10 seconds!
Anyone know this strange behavior?
I also tried a Samsung HM640JJ, with the same result (the installation runs >10 hours, so i cancelled it).
Any hints would be welcome!! Thank you!!!
Is this a good question?
