Easy

Mijn probleem

Old HD died when laptop was dropped. Apple wouldnt cover it, insurance wouldnt cover it, and considering it was brand new and NZD$3200 worth, it seemed a waste to not attempt a fix!

Mijn oplossing

Went very well. Took me about 20mins to install new drive, however data transfer took me hours. As the old drive was damaged, the data couldnt be recovered. So I actually copied an image of another macbooks OS (using Superduper!) onto the new drive. All tools supplied worked well, and it was very straight forward. Laptop now works well, but I am still in a funny position where I have to find a way to get an original OS on there so that im not breaching apples rules.

Mijn advies

Dont drop your laptop! But otherwise, follow the install guides. On a side note, If you are running Lion as an OS, it wont let you install an older version OS instead. Interesting
