Hard Disk Optibay Runs Only When Entering The BIOS And Boot .

I believe all reference to the bios is removed... This tool needs to be executed from the Recovery OS. Reply Gray @ 2:44 am on April 22, 2014 Hey Michael! However, a full port is unlikely to occur unless a generous Internet user wants to oblige.

Reply Rumboogy @ 2:46 am on June 27, 2013 Ok, now I am confused. And kudos to those within Apple engineering that also did tweaks along the way to enable 6Gb/s to work in the majority of systems with 6Gb/s link available in the optical Reply Clint @ 5:36 pm on June 7, 2015 got a problem also..before my caddy works fine but since its been replaced by apple…caddy wont connect and hdd keeps on unmounting….:( Many Thanks, Gray Reply OWC Michael @ 7:47 am on April 22, 2014 Absolutely.

Make sure you partition it exactly as stated above, and make sure you have the latest release of Kali. like (most) others have searched extensively on alternate methods and sunk a lot of time on what I would have hoped to be a rather straightforward procedure. :-) pps: me suspects running two SSD's (one 3G, one 6G)?

  • Cheers!
  • I'll got the screwdriver ready now!!
  • If you plan on upgrading from 4GB (2X 2GB) to 8GB (2X 4GB) Removing the battery would be better.
  • You can buy HGST 1TB 5400, 1TB 7200RPM, 1.5TB 5400RPM, and 500GB 7200RPM HGST HDDs in 3Gb/s mode from us, and we by default include them in our Data Doubler kits

  • DU is reading the disk but simply cannot format it.

I have a HGST 1tb on the optical bay and Im experiencing unnmounts and random crashes when transferring data. Once you’ve got your Linux distro of choice, click “Create Live USB” and direct the program to your ISO. Rebooting again while holding down Alt only shows my HDD and Recovery drive. thanks again Reply MBP @ 2:08 pm on September 16, 2015 Hi Larry.

Now if I could just figure out how to make it persistent. Nick Names - 08/14/2015 I'm having a similar problem where I think I messed something with this step and now my computer is REALLY slow and I cant get any wifi. Have the Windows ISO handy, and plug in a flash drive thats about 4-8 GB or more. or would this one be mac specific.

All Rights Reserved. All you need for this process if your Mac and a blank USB stick – no Windows computer is required! Thanks again Reply OWC Larry @ 11:57 am on September 17, 2015 Lots of flexibility ultimately in what you're seeking to do. Note that it is not ideal or advised to do a RAID between the optical and main bay with two different speed drives.

But still it did not work. You’re now ready for the second step. I did manage to foul the file up to where it just bombs on startup like earlier users were discussing. Just look at the command and type it out yourself, being sure that "-fs - /Applications/..." is correct!

Reply Justin P November 16, 2013 at 6:37 pm This does work for intel-based Macs, though some readers are reporting problems with Mavericks. useful reference Advertisement To get started, ensure your USB stick is properly formatted – we need a FAT32, MBR drive. when I was trying to sign the program using the following command: sudo codesign -f -s - /Applications/Utilities/Boot\ Camp\\ Camp\ Assistant I was getting a message within terminal stating that amiller770 - 02/08/2015 I neglected step 3 and now my computer won't turn on.

It is what I used and works great and looks pretty and is guaranteed to protect your superdrive. Is their a third party application for the mac that can create the windows7 usb drive for me? The process primarily works with Ubuntu and derivatives, but could potentially work with other versions of Linux. my review here I am admittedly as uneducated as it comes to computers so this may be a simple fix that I just don't understand so any help would be appreciated greatly!

Flash drives are probably a better idea in any case... Could be your Mac is old enough that our software isn't necessary, and software like UNetBootin will do the job. We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of tips and tricks.

Thanks for sharing it here.

SSD Savage 250Gb. I have a mid-2007 iMac (iMac 7,1) with an inoperable internal optical drive (believe to be a motherboard issue), running Yosemite. I’ll do what I can to point you in the correct direction, but I might not be able to help – it really feels like Apple made life needlessly complex for Simply push the camera cable gently aside to remove one of the three screws securing the optical drive (step 11).

If so, you need one more step. Reply Enrique Delgado @ 7:11 am on March 13, 2014 I reset both the SMC and the PRAM. Maybe it will work for them , but bummer! I'm thinking (internal) optibay, (external) TB, FW, ...

One more thing: If there is anything on your USB stick back it up now – we will likely delete everything on it during the process.
