I am going to be replacing the Hard drive in my Mid 2010 Mac Book Pro (Snow Leopard 10.6.8) and I noticed that on the box the Hard drive claims to support Mountain Lion or Higher. I am wondering if this is just placed there for convenience (claiming to support highest firmware since most people will have it) or if this means that it will not run with OS X 10.6.8?

HD model: WD WDBMYH0010BNC

Does the firmware impact how / if the Hard drive will function?

  • If you give us the HD model we could help looking it up.
