I have a MacBook pro 2012 which my friend gave me with the hard drive removed so they could keep their data. I have since bought an SSD and installed it but when I boot up I get a flashing question mark. I have reset the ram then I have tried booting to recovery and it downloads data and gets to the end and then the apple logo comes up then it goes to a white screen and stays there.
Any help would be much appreciated?
Does the drive potentially need formatting in a certain way or partitioning? I've read it could be a hard drive cable but trying to not buy anymore parts without confirming that is the issue first.
