My Problem

The computer refused to boot with the familiar folder with the? in the middle. This was obviously a bad hard drive right - NOT! OK motherboard right, no.

My Problem

HDD stopped being accessible (folder with '?' sign on startup)

My Fix

Overall, great guide. I didn't manage, however, to make LED work (I have only replaced the HDD cable but used the old bracket). Not a big deal, of course.

Tried to update my late 2011 Macbook to a Solid State and of course, got that cursed blinking folder! Crucial told me it was 99% the hard drive cable, they see it a lot in the 2011 MacBooks.
