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
