    Hello,

    Has anyone had any luck with upgrading the current 2010 MacBook's hard disk?

    If so which drive did you use?

    I've just upgraded using a wdc5000bevt scorpio blue and it seems to be giving me these EFI related problems (constantly parking the heads)

    Has anyone successfully tried the Samsung hm641ji drive?

    Thanks, Daniel

    I had that problem, you must disable the sleep timer on the hdd. Kinda sucks, I too have an western digital hdd with sleep timer disabled on my netbook and it still clicks like crazy:mad: So your YMMV.

    But since you solved the problem great:D
