    Hi all :)
    I've got a big problem. About a week ago, I completely ran out of hard drive space, so I decided to upgrade the standard 250 GB hdd in my uMBP 2,4 Ghz 4GB ram to a new 750 GB one. However, I have a special setup: Shortly after I bought my macbook, I replaced my superdrive with a SSD, which contains my OS X. I then moved my homefolder to my regular hard drive due to its size. This has worked perfectly for about 1.5 years. So to recap:

    SSD: OS + apps
    HDD: home folder (movies, files, library) + bootcamp

    I bought a new Western Digital 750 drive, placed it in an external enclosure and used carbon copy cloner to clone over my HDD. After swapping out the drive, OS X booted and I thought all was good. It wasn't.

    The operating system would freeze at completely random times. Not completely lock up: I could still move my mouse, and switch windows by clicking them. But spotlight, the dock, expose and all the rest just froze. I tried disabling spotlight (I read that if spotlight tries to index a corrupt file, the system freezes), I tried to repair disk permissions several times, reset PRAM, tried the restore disk option, I even booted in Disk warrior and let it do a complete run. None of it helped, so I decided to completely reinstall my OS X. I formatted both my SSD and new HDD and installed SL to my SSD, after which I moved my home folder again.

    This seemed to had solved it (is that a correct tense?), but yesterday the OS froze again. I rebooted, ran disk permissions etc, but a couple of hours ago it froze again.


    So it's a faulty hard drive you say! But here is the crazy bit: I also reinstalled Bootcamp on my new HDD, and this works flawless. Ever since my OS X got unstable, I've been using Windows 7 instead and it hasn't given a single hiccup. The smart status of the drive is positive, and the apple hardware test can't find anything wrong.

    I am getting desperate. I want my stable mac back. Does anybody have any other tips / suggestions?

    Thanks for reading
    Vincent


    EDIT: I ran a hard drive diagnostics program. It said there was no problem, here is the log:
    log.txt

    (I don't know where the weird characters came from, you can ignore them.)

    I'm guessing that it might be the mac's internal SMS (Sudden Motion Sensor) conflicting with the WD's own drive protection (if there is one on that model)

    go into terminal and type
    sudo pmset -g

    see is the sms shows 1 (on)

    try turning it off

    sudo pmset - a sms 0

    SMS info can be found here
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1934?viewlocale=en_US

    reboot and see if you have issues

    Or before all of that see if your hard drive has built in drive protection. Seagate calls it g-force, not sure what WD calls it.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I disabled SMS and will see if the problem still exists. If anybody has a different idea, let me know.

    Switch to Windows 7. Use it as your main OSX:)

    Sorry have you tried installing other copy of OSX (may be some files are corrupt), I know it makes no sense but still.

    Try contacting Apple it might be some issue with SSD hard drive.

    I didn't buy a mac to use windows 7 ;)
    And i'm sure the os is fine: it runs a check on the disk before the installation starts. Sending the macbook to Apple would be too expensive, since it's 1.5 years old and I didn't purchase Applecare.

    The problem still exists. Are there any Mac experts out there? :(

    Shouldn't run windows on ANY laptop, its ONLY real use is for games.
    Linux based operating systems are far superior... I've never run a windows computer for over a year straight (can you? without some critical updating coming along that you MUST restart for)...


    you should zero out the drive, reformat, DON'T MOVE A SINGLE BACKUP OVER. (run it like a new computer)
    run it like that for a few days, and see if theres a problem.
    if there isn't the problem is with the backup. move your files manually, and reinstall your apps from the source.

    if there is still a problem, then your issue is hardware related. sometimes other random hardware issues happen when your doing something else. sometimes related, sometimes not.

    test everything, Memory (using memtest86+), and CPU are the most likely culprits of a hard freeze

    also, explain what you mean by
    you replaced your superdrive with a SSD? something like this:
    SSD Swap Cables

    did you install the SSD yourself? have you tested it? (I don't mean "It worked before, and now it doesn't"... I mean have you physically tested it?).
    the SATA adapter in the MBP isn't conventional and requires the building of a custom adapter to bridge the apple proprietary cable to the conventional ones used by REAL companies
    [​IMG]
    (right-click and open in new tab if it doesn't display)

    are you powering your SSD with Molex or a SATA power adapter? (all my SSDs are SATA powered, and their all around a year old).

    so to summerize, you need to determine if the problem is actually your hard-drive, or if it could be your RAM or CPU. then, if it is your hard-drive, you need to take a look at the modifications you did.

    Actually ***

    Actually - I would open the case and inspect the SATA connection first... Im really thinking thats the source of your problems. make sure it isn't loose...

    also - Is the SSD secured to the chassis? or is it loose in the Optical-drives slot?

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a long reply. First of, I replaced my Superdrive with a SSD using optibay. It looks a lot better then in the image you linked(no cables). If you google optibay, you'll see that it's a tested solution.

    I've now also noticed that if I leave my macbook alone long enough, it will usually snap out of the freeze. When I did the last format, I already tried your idea of not moving over any files, since I thought some might be corrupt. I downloaded everything again, but it didn't help. I didn't zero out dough, just format. But that shouldn't make a difference, right?

    I also ran the Apple hardware test, which was "testing RAM" for 2 hours. Do you think it might have missed something?

    I have the macbook with the easy replaceable hard drive: I just need to remove one screw to replace my battery. The connector is also very big and sterdy, it seems extremely unlikely that this would fail.

    For the SSD: again, search for optibay. I don't believe there is a problem with this. (especially since the problems started to occur since I got the new hard drive, and the SSD has been working perfectly 1.5 years before that).

    Thanks again for helping me.

    it actually does make a difference, but maybe not in this case.
    SSD's can't be securely erased the same way on a MAC http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=841182

    I googled optibay.. and I'd say its far from proven...

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=794859

    maybe its the optibay?

    what SSD do you have?

    Mmmh, your right, those problems are very much like mine. I'll try removing my optibay and living on my 60 GB ssd for a few days.

    EDIT: damn, I just checked, it's 19 days since I bought the drive, can't return it anymore :(

    All for the purpose of the diagnosing the problem...
    if that solve it, then Its the optibay, not necessarily meaning it doesn't work.
    but maybe its incompatible with your SSD selection (thats why I asked).

    an EFI update may have caused this (when did you last update?)

    also, tell me if your computer boots noticeably faster with only the one drive. I've heard the MCE Optibay slows boot performance significantly.

    Yes, it does boot quite slow with optibay in place. I noticed that immedately after I placed it. It takes 6 seconds before the apple logo shows up. I don't really remember when I updated, I do it all the time. The SSD is an OCZ core 64 GB: http://www.guru3d.com/article/ocz-core-sata-64gb-solid-state-drive-review/
