I just bought a new 60GB SSD. Its an OCZ Vertex Plus. Here are the Specs. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227738 Well anyway, I own a Black 2007 Macbook and decided to upgrade since the ssd was cheap and I didnt need my 250GB Hdd in there anyway. I tried installing 10.6 SL on the drive and everything seemed to work until after the welcome video. It made me set up my account and register, and then when the OS is supposed to actually boot to the desktop it doesnt and I just get the pinwheel. I left it there for about 30 Min, then just decided to wipe and try again to no avail. After the 3rd time I decided eff it. I got a OSX Lion Usb Drive and tried doing that. Lion gets to the process where it restarts, then starts installing. I then receive a No Recovery Error, where it tells me a Recovery cant be created then proceeds to cancel the install. The only way to get the drive to even try and install again is to restart, clear the PRAM and try again. Which gives me the same error. My macbook has been running fine, I feel like its my drive that is bad but I was able to get it to recognize and format fine in Windows. I figure maybe someone had a workaround or similar problem? My next step is to try it on a different mac using Target Disk Mode and see if that helps. Any advice/help is greatly appreciated. I will answer in the morning when I wake up. I was pumped to finally have an SSD regardless of the speed of smaller random writes etc, I never thought I would have this much trouble. PS: Looks like I have latest FW of 3.02.
