MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2012 Hard Drive Cable Replacement

15 minutes

Very easy

My Problem

Hard drive would not boot while connected to the internal SATA cable but would boot correctly when placed into an external USB carrier.

My Fix

The repair process was very easy. Remove the laptop bottom cover, unscrew and remove the hard drive hold down brackets, unplug the hard drive from the SATA cable then remove the two hold down screws for the SATA cable and unplug the cable from the motherboard. Install the iFixit replacement SATA cable in the opposite order.

My Advice

Go to iFixit for advice and parts for Apple product repair. They'll save you allot of time and money.
