Just a few months ago, I bought the latest 2011 MacBook Pro. Now, a few months later, I have a problem. It seems like my notebook is rejecting my hard drive (which is an SSD).

How it all began: yesterday, business as usual, I wanted to log in. After typiing my password and pressing enter, something strange happened. OS X was loading, and loading, and loading, till finally it froze (or gave an error, don't know for sure). But anyway, I couldn't get in, so I restarted my laptop. But it didn't start, it just hung with a no-entry directory. At home, I started to search on the Internet. I repaired my disk, several times. When I inserted another hard drive in my laptop, it worked. When I put my SSD in another MacBook, it works. When I plug my SSD externally to my MacBook, it works. But when I put my SDD inside in my MacBook, it doesn't work.

Has anyone had experience with this problem and know how to solve this without a reinstall?

  • The other Hard Drive you plug in the MacBook is a SSD too? What are the specifications of the failing SSD? Is this the first time it does something weird ? – Thecafremo May 17 '12 at 7:51
  • When I say HD, it is not a SSD. SSD is a Vertex 3. This is the first time. – Timo M May 17 '12 at 16:15
  • I have tried everything, also reinstall. Still nothing. I think the problem lays with SATA 3. The SSD works in other computers. – Timo M May 17 '12 at 16:16
  • Thats exactly what I was thinking of. – Thecafremo May 17 '12 at 16:21
