I wrote about my experience dealing with a failed HD in my iMac
Well, it happened again
I watched as my MBP HD began the early stages of failing
The color wheel of death started to make frequent appearances on the simplest of tasks
Lucky for me, I have been through this before
I quickly confirmed all my data was backed up on 2 external HD’s
I then ordered a new HD, but made sure to invest a little more $ into a SSD.
The new SSD arrived and instead of installing the SSD right away, I did the smart thing.
I connected the new SSD to my Macbook via a SATA to USB adapter and booted up in recovery mode.
Once in recovery mode I was able to install a fresh copy of macOS on the new SSD.
I have found using this method allows you to quickly install a new macOS on your new SSD and confirm it runs properly.
