I was one of those "complainers" about the sata problem because I purchased my 13'' MBP with an intel x25-m SSD. Excited to update I went through the process, like normal, except upon the restart of my computer the screen stayed gray until a gray blinking folder with a question mark popped up. I quickly looked up the apple support page for the problem, and attempted to solve it myself. I booted into the restore CD but I found no hard drive available. Next I reset the PRAM, but that also solved nothing. Afraid that my x25 was dead (weird since it was working two minutes earlier), I removed it from my MBP and put it into an external drive that the old HD was sitting in. The x25-m was instantly recognized on a different laptop in the enclosure. When I boot up my MBP with the old drive, I could see it under the disk utility application from the CD. I tried booting into the single user mode, but I can't seem to get my laptop into it. When I hit cmd+s it stays gray until the folder comes up. Someone! Anyone! I know that the geniuses at Apple will blame my hard drive, but I know it still works! Any ideas!?!' Edit: Holding down the option key brings up either nothing, or the restore CD only.
