I've been given a defective MacBook Pro, seems to be a model from around 2011 - still has a DVD-Drive and a normal HDD.
The MacBook had water spilled over it; so I disassemed it and took the HDD out to connect it (via SATA) to a normal PC. I booted into PartedMagic (with the ultimate Boot CD) and tried to see what's on the HDD. I can see three partitions: 1: 200MiB fat32; labeled "EFI" 2: 465GiB "unknown", labeled "Customer" 3: 620MiB hfs+ Recocery_HD
As far as my understanding goes, the user partition should be hfs+ also; when I try to manually mount it (mount -t hfs plus /dev/......) I get an error that it's not possible (wrong filesystem etc).
Has this to do with some kind of encryption? Is there a way to get the data from the (obviously working) HDD without using another Mac?
Thank you very much in advance.
