Hey everyone, done a bit of research here and there and couldn't really find a very decisive answer in regards to what is going on with a Macbook Pro, recently purchased second hand from a company that went under. (No Documentation, As-Is Fun) So here goes. When the battery status button is pressed, it blinks 5 times. According to the Apple Help articles, with prior experience this indicates that is needs a new battery. Have a new one on the way. It takes a long while of having the grey screen before the Apple Logo shows up. (If this Mavericks install works on an HDD, will replace with an SDD to test speeds. Have SSD in Mac Mini/Server Boot time is no where near the same.) Minus some discoloration on the top of the screen where someone attempted to replace the LCD and torched the corner of it and melted the seal. I know of no other standing issues. As the current configuration stands. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011) -Not sure if it is the i5 or i7 model yet. (Installing 10.9 right now.) -2GB 1Rx8 PC3-10600S (Tried a 2Rx8 PC3-1600S and it wouldn't boot) -320GB 7200 RPM Samsung Apple HDD Open to suggestion to maybe decrease boot time or reset it to boot load baseline. Thank you.
