Windows 7: SSD Mystery

24 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1
SSD Mystery

Here's a post I posted to

I have this year-old OCZ solid-state drive as the primary drive for a MacBook Pro after the original died.
The SSD had been working fine until recently when the MacBook quit seeing it. On boot up, a flashing folder with a question mark would appear. Upon trying to reinstall Leopard, the drive would not show up at all.
So, I took the MacBook to MicroCenter. They diagnosed the SSD as being dead & told me to contact OCZ. They took out the drive for me.
Not satisfied with that news, I decided to hook up the SSD to a drive enclosure and connect it to my laptop running Windows 7.
Well, turns out that the SSD is not dead. The Windows laptop can see it and with the help of TransMac software, can open and view the contents of the drive.
Now I am not sure what to do. The drive works, but I don't trust that the MacBook Pro will see it & boot it if I reinstall the drive.
Could something else be the problem with the Mac?
I am a PC person & a noob with Mac...
Anybody with Mac experience have any ideas here?
