Replacing SSD in MacBook Pro, is my shopping list + plan OK?
Hi everybody. I'm planning to replace the SSD in my MBP with a bigger capacity regular market SSD. Not an Apple branded one. I'm using a Sintech adapter and a Samsung Evo 970. Device is a Macbook Pro 13" Early 2015 (A1502).
Here's what I'm planning on buying:
After installing the drive in the machine, I need to first boot into Linux via bootable USB to partition the drive. Then I should be able to run the High Sierra bootable USB to setup the system, after partitioning again with Disk Utility to GUID and APFS.
I'm wondering if I'm doing this correctly. Is there anything I'm forgetting or could be doing better? I will probably need to find a local (Dutch) vendor for the Sintech adapter but I'm sure I can find it somewhere.
Any feedback appreciated.
Is this a good question?
