MacBook Pro not cooperating with new hard drive. Keeps shutting down.
I decided to upgrade my 250GB HDD so I bought a 2TB SSHD from Amazon, particularly this one: Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch Hard Drive (ST2000LX001)
I installed the new hard drive into my computer, installed High Sierra on it. It is very finicky in my machine. Sometimes it will work great until I shut down the computer. After that, it will go to the Apple logo, go to a white screen, and then shut off and restart and do this loop over and over again.
Sometimes It will boot up like normal and work for a few minutes but then it will suddenly shut off again and do what I just explained earlier. I put my old hard drive back in and it didn’t have this problem.
Also, I put my new hard drive into my other computer and it worked completely fine, it seems to only have the issue on my MacBook Pro.
I also bought a brand new ribbon cable for the machine as well, which is confusing. Is my hard drive just not compatible with my machine? It has claimed to be compatible with my MacBook model. What do I do?
That’s the issue. I cannot turn on the computer with the battery connected, meaning I cannot access and get a report from coconut battery. I used to be able to, but I can’t anymore. When I did check coconut battery before that started happening, it said that the battery was in good condition. I will keep trying though and I will notify you if I can get coconutbattery to successfully look at the battery and make a report.
EDIT: Was able to boot into safe mode and get a report!!
Here it is
Is this a good question?
