I bought 2 a1211 macbook pro laptops for just under £30 the pair. One turns on but no chime, nothing on screen nor does it light up. Second one turns on lights up and shows folder as no HDD. So fitted a HDD, free floating at moment as seller took old hdd out with fittings! anyway put the OSX 10.5 disc and hold alt + C. only shows HDD, so try my 10.4 disc again only HDD Both these discs work in my ibook G4 so I know they are good. Tried linux mint disc, it worked and installed. placed OSX disc in drive and it shows and can see the disc in mint. Tried two usb optical too but nope not work either. I was going to run the hack to get el cap on this machine but if cannot even get 10.4/10.5 to work then not sure if it work. I do not have a 10.6 or 10.7 disc to try. These machines do not support web recovery? Any suggestions guys?
