Alright, so I got this from a raffle. It’s a June 2009 MacBook Pro 13inch A1278. When I first got it it would load about halfway on the progress bar, restart and boot straight to os utilities. Everything read good. Would not let me use internet recovery for OS X El Capitan and it came with no install disk. My buddy at a computer shop was able to put my hardrive in his Mac and he said it acted crazy, but he erased it and put a fresh install of OS X Sierra on it and it works in his MacBook. When it’s put in mine it shows the circle with the slash through it, it will not let you boot from usb or anything. We also tried the hdd cable and that wasn’t it. Everything that could be reset has been reset. We’re stumped and need some help. Thanks guys.
