Can I swap out Hard Drive from old MacBook into new MacBook?
My Macbook Pro just died from liquid spill, but the 500 GB hard drive is unscathed, and all my data is intact. When I get a new Macbook, can I take out it's 500 GB hard drive and replace it with the old one? Would that work?
Would the new laptop start up as if it was the old laptop?
If I can't do that I'll have to transfer everything over manually and sift through all the old files to try to find software keys and serial numbers, etc.
The old drive is currently in an external drive housing and is working fine.
Is this a good question?
