Well it seems that the western digital hard disk saga for the macbook will not arrive for several weeks. So instead i recieved a seagate 320gb 7200rpm 2.5″ laptop hard disk. Now it is time to time machine the hard disk, and restore the conents from the tme machine disk to the new large insternal storage unit.
I have allocated a old 200gb hard disk, split into two 100gb partitions. The first partition is the time machine partition for backing up the internal macbook pro hard disk. The second partition I have allocated as a file repositorie for mac software.
So far I have no issues with the Macbook Pro. I just need to get myself more proficient with Mac OS X.
Well Day five of the Macbook Pro saga. No larger internal storage has turned up yet. I decided to install applications upon the Macbook Pro, and start using the machine. The first thing I have done is setup another external hard disk as a time machine backup disk. I find that the usb hard disk unit is slow, and have decided to purchase a firewire hard disk unit.
Lets see how monday goes.
Well day four, of the macbook pro saga. With no larger internal storage available, I decided to install Mac OSX Leopard, and will time machine the disk. When I do the re-install on the new hard disk, I will hopefully do a time machine install, when the new installation happens on the disk.
Hoping tomorrow, the internal storage will arrive tomorrow.
Well today, things are definitely looking better, I have been able to acquire a operating system, but not larger internal storage.
Well still having no operating system today, but I went down to CPL to order a Western Digital 320gb 7200rpm 2.5″ hard disk. And again CPL was out of stock, no awaiting for a operating system, and larger internal storage.
Hopefully tomorrow will bring something better.
Recieved my macbook pro today (17th November 2008..), but unfortunately, I did not recieved the operating system dvd’s. Which makes my macbook pro a very glorified paperweight till I get a operating system. If the previous owner does not send me the operating system, guess its down to JB hifi to buy a copy of leopard. Hopefully tomorrow something better will happen.
