    Hi

    I recently bought a Runcore 1.8" SSD RCP-IV-ZA1828-C from Mydigitaldiscount.com.
    After received, found that they sent me a RCP-IV-Z1828-C, I live chat with mydigitaldiscount aftersales service, they said 2 models are identical.
    I would like to know is it true? I tried to install to my Macbook air Rev A, a folder with a questionmark is shown on screen when booting.
    do you know what is the problem? is the clone problem or the drive is not compatible actually??

    BR

    I guess the question mark is because your new SSD is neither formatted nor does it have an OS. You need to boot from an OSX DVD and run the Disk Utility, but since the MBA doesn't have a disc drive I guess you either need an external USB one or use a network drive if that's possible. It is possible to access discs over the network, I'm just not sure if you can boot from them.
