Hi all! I just got a used mid-2010 13" MacBook Pro from my job. It's in great condition and would perfectly suit my needs. My plan is to keep it in 10.6.8, SSD+optibay it and 8-gigs-of-RAM it. I already have an Intel 520 series SSD that I would like to use as main drive (I'd use the original HDD in the optibay). But I can't seem to install OSX on this drive. Here's my story: pulled out the HDD, stuck the SSD there instead (the SSD still had a Win7x64 partitioning and install on it, but I figured it didn't matter since the plan was to wipe it out) tried to boot with the SL DVD, computer freezes after a few seconds on a never-seen-before weird screen (sorry for bad pic) decided to format the SSD to HFS+ GUID from my other 10.6.8 MacBook (although I couldn't clearly explain how that would change anything) tried to do as in 2. above, this time the grey Apple and spinning thing appear, but after quite a wait, I get the grey Apple curtain of death (the one telling you to shut down the computer) during that wait time, I've noticed the DVD drive spins and halts a few times until crash. Is this normal? I've checked the DVD burnt surface and it looks perfectly clean, could the DVD drive be faulty? booted computer from original HDD plugged through USB with the SSD on the internal SATA connector to try and install OSX on the SSD from the DVD in a running OS environment: after a while installing, like 10 minutes, I get the grey curtain of death Any help appreciated!
