Can you upgrade the hard drive of the santa rosa macbook? If not why??
Yes you can upgrade the hard drive in the said MB..
Just remove the L-bracket under the battery then on the left side pull the lil tab for hard drive .. Remove the hard drive screws from the sled and replace the drive with the new one and reserve the steps..
Before you do this backup your stuff first ..
how do you install leopard on the new hard drive? oh ya, it is ummmm. 2.5" SATA drive right?
Yup 2.5" SATA drive 9.5 mm high ..
install 1st disc and reboot, hold down C to boot off of the CD .. install from there..
But i'll probably forgot a step or two but people will correct my steps ..
basically i am getting a new macbook, upgrading to 4 GB of ram, and updating the hard drive.
ummm wat happens when you turn on a computer with a no os hard drive? wat do u mean by this?
It won't boot. You need to install the OS on the hard drive before you can actually use the computer.
You can use the Install Discs that came with the computer or a Retail Install Disc that you bought on your own.
do you basically turn on the computer and put the disc in?
Yes boot from the DVD that came with the machine... once you boot to the DVD, you will need to go to disk utility and format the new HD to Extended (Journaled). Then just install the system.
