    Hi all,

    Had a bit of an issue today as I managed to somehow damage the sata cable for my 2011 MBP when looking at replacing the Superdrive

    My MBP refused to boot but would boot with the SSD plugged into a USB caddy

    I have taken the cable from my old 2010 MBP and it now boots up and works fine

    Apple Diagnostics show the 4HDD/11/40000000:SATA(0,0) Error Code when run

    I suspect this is down to the cable being from an older model MBP.

    I have ordered a replacement cable already with the same part number so will swap it out once it arrives

    I assume I am fine to keep running the MBP as it is till then?

    Edit - I should add that the SSD is less than a week old and is working perfectly

    Edit 2 - Ran the test again and this time it didn't produce the error

    Now I am confused and the replacement cable has been paid for

    Don't worry about it...if it becomes an issue replace it. I can't image the cable cost much.

    I have a sata cable coming with the correct part number. I will keep it as a spare in case anything happens

    My MBP is working perfectly as it is now

    I replaced the data cable in the 2010 model yesterday and that is now working again.

    Well the cable arrived today and I decided to fit it, this way I know I have the correct cable in my MBP.

    Working fine and the other cable from the 2010 MBP can now be the spare
