Can I use a hard drive from another MacBook Pro in this machine
I have a Macbook Pro early 2009 with replaceable battery. It has broken down.
My solution was to buy a used Macbook Pro 2.53 Ghz, mid 2009.
The hard drive from the broken down computer has Yosemite installed as the OS. The 2.53 Ghz machine has El Capitan installed as the OS.
I want to preserve some software with features in iTunes that are no longer available. There are other configuration settings I want to preserve as well.
I want to replace the hard drive in the 2.53Ghz machine with the hard drive from the broken down machine. Can I do this? I noticed from hard drive replacement for the 2.53 Ghz machine on iFixit that the hard drive is mounted in the same bracket as the optical drive. It is listed as dual hard drive.
Thank you for time and attention;
Is this a good question?
