    My SDD of my rMBP 15" Mid 2014 died, I don't have the money to buy a new one, but I do have an older internal HDD and an Extenal HDD Enclosure... :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Any video in YouTube that show me How to???

    Thanks

    You could I also try connecting your old internal HDD drive by USB and see if you can boot from that drive ?

    If it was from that same computer it should boot just fine

    I misunderstood - thought your comment was that you had a HDD (Back UP?) in the enclosure and might be able to reboot from that.

    did you try internet recovery mode? - How to enter Internet Recovery Mode
