I have a 2009 MacBook Pro 15". I woke up one day, but my Mac didn't. I was getting nothing but a blank screen so I tried to shut it down a reboot it. Now it won't boot up.. I get the white screen as it tried to boot and th processing bar starts to fill up, but it never finishes. I have been told it's the hard drive.
I am ready to install a new SSD Samsung evo 850 drive, but how am I supposed to install the OS? Design is no longer my main career and I don't need a lot of the programs and extra stuff I once had. I also have most everything saved in the cloud so I would rather start fresh and not transfer the old OS over.
What are my options?
