My mac book pro(13 inch mid 2012) has become very slow and I approached apple service centre they found out my HDD has become faulty and that's the reason , my laptop is very slow.
Unfortunately HDD is expensive than SSD and SSD is much faster.But apple won't do HDD to SSD replacement while they're ready to do HDD to HDD replacement.
I bought a brand new SSD for my macbook pro and I bought a screw driver set.
Can anyone suggest me things I should be aware of while doing the following things ?
- While unpacking my laptop ( I read some static electricity will be there and can cause short circuit or do I have to drain my battery before unpacking or just switched off mac book pro is fine )
- While replacing HDD with SSD( Do I have to buy any SATA cable or SATA to IDE converter or something )
- While installing the new OS on the new SSD.( Not sure how to do this though).
Any help is appreciated
FYI: I have backed up all my data in external Hard drive and I don't want to keep the HDD anymore. Just want to put in the new SSD in place of HDD and have the OS in it and use the mac. that's all.
