iMac late 2013 internal drive/ssd not working after change
Update: It was a faulty SATA cable
I tried to change the old 1TB drive into an 500SSD. Everything went smooth but after the start with the new SSD installed, it was not recognised.
I removed it again and connected it externally on my other Mac, formatted it (GUID / Extended (Journaled)) and installed it again. No change.
I installed the old 1TB hard drive again and now this too is not recognised any more.
I re-checked every cable and connection twice, no change.
When trying to install via web I get this image with a half scrollbar when asked about the drive to install to:
Any ideas what the problem is? Could it be that the hard drive controller on the logic board was somehow damaged from the newly installed SSD when booting with it the first time?
Cette question est-elle utile ?
