    Hi guys as the title say, does that mean i can't use a ssd ?
    I've read online that some people can't boot their macbook, because the OS X Yosemite can detect what ssd/hdd is from apple.

    You can use an SSD. They are not blocked, just the trim function for garbage collection is.

    I run without it, and have for nearly a year.

    There might be a hack to enable on Yosemite now, there wasnt for awhile.

    Some even speculate trim isnt all thaaat necessary with the internal garbage collection many SSD do themselves.
