Replacing broken HDD seagate 320GB 7200 for Samsung 320GB 5400
I'm having a problem with an internal HDD replacement. I bought a Samsung spinpoint 320GB 5400rpm HDD to built into my maxbook pro 15" A1286 model. My old internal HDD is broken and when i heard the cost of a HDD replacement by Apple i thought it could spare me some money by repairing it myself. As i removed the old HDD en replaced the new one, everything went just fine. I followed all the instructions on Ifixit and all the srews fit :D. When i turned the computer on (booted with the Mac os X 10.6 DVD in it, and held "c" on the keyboard) it starts up the installation procedure for Mac OS X. But the new HDD is not recognized by the Mac OS X DVD and neither by the Disk Utility application on the DVD. Also when i watch my Serial SATA information in System profile it says that there isn't any.
How is this possible? Is this HDD not compatible with my macbook pro 15"A1286?
I already performed:
- a PRAM
- Initialized the new HDD on a windows PC (didn't make a partition on it.)
Is this a good question?
