My SSD is not recognized in my white MacBook end 2007
First of all I'm a French mac user and my English isn't so good. I'll try to be simple.
I bought last Monday an SSD Samsung 830 series 128go
I replace my old Hard drive for this one. I launch Snow Leopard DVD install and when the prompt ask me to select the hard drive, nothing appear.
So I launch the disk utility and just my optical drive appear nothing else.
I remove the SSD from the macbook and replace with the old HDD.
I launch my macbook and put the SSD in a usb external hard drive case.
The SSD appear in disk utility. So I create a partition with a GUID table partition.
I launch with SL DVD install the software to install OS x on my SSD. After a while and one reboot the installation is finish.
I replace the SSD in the macbook and launch it. Just a grey screen appear nothing else, not even a file icon with a question mark blanking ...
I insert the DVD and reboot, try to install and when the prompt came to select a place to install, nothing appear.
I launch once again the disk utility but still only the optical drive appear.
If I put my SSD on the External HDD case, reboot the mac with "alt" key, I can select the SDD and launch the OS ...
So as u can see I'm a bit lost.
1) I thought it's my internal Sata connector dead, but in this case, my old HDD couldn't worked and it worked.
2) Maybe it's my DVD install dead but in this case why I'm able to install on the SDD with the external case.
Si if someone had any idea ....
In advance thanks a lot
Is this a good question?
