iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2889 HD Replacement - SSD not found
Bought the iFixit kit, which included 1TB Samsung 860 Evo SSD.
Followed Mike’s Clone an Existing Drive guide, only issue was that "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" wasn’t found when I tested on USB. Re-cloned as APFS, and all fine there, booted perfectly.
Jeff’s guide is great - all went well - toughest bit is getting the adhesive strips on properly. Now the issue - won’t boot with the SSD in the internal HD bay, screen shows only a folder icon with “?” in the middle, and just sits there. Replaced original HD, and booted fine. Also booted again from the SSD when on USB.
Currently have iMac with original drive, screen held on with tape until this is solved.
Any ideas please?
Is this a good question?
