MBP A1226 doesn't boot on SL on a SSD
Like so many people, I installed a SSD in place of the HD, and shifted the HD in a SATA/ PATA caddy, in place of the DVD...
Then I did a clean install of SL 10.6.8, migrated applications and data.
But the MBP is unable to boot on the SSD.
I can have it boot after disabling extensions (shift key) or "manually" when selected after holding the option key at start-up. Not very convenient, hum?!
Any idea? Because of this problem, I tried another brand of SSD (SanDisk; the first one being an OCZ Petrol. both in SATA III). The same problem occurred.
I was told to update to Lion, who is supposed to fix the problem but I don't want to (I need some Rosetta softwares). I can't believe pre-unibody MBP 153 just don't accept SSDs! This would have been displayed on the best Websites and forums like the iFixit ones!
Thanks for your thoughts and solutions!
Is this a good question?
