    I swapped my hard drive from a 13" alum macbook to the 15" macbook pro but the mbp wouldn't boot up. I makes the apple dong sound then it just keeps on restarting. The macbook books up tho, anyone know how to fix this? Am i missing macbook pro files or something

    Yes you're missing MBP files, they're different machines. Take the drive out, put the original back in, and use migration assistant to transfer over the files.

    Thats weird because I use a 500gb hHDD between all three of my laptops and they all boot up fine of the same HDD that I used originally in just a macbook. It takes a litchi longer doing the initial boot, but after that I have had no problems.
