Hello Apple friends,
I'm asking I'm very new to Apple. I've agreed to support a few Apple devices at my agency because nobody else will do it. A friend found out, and asked me to help with their Macbook Pro from early 2011.
It turns on, but stops at the screen with the Apple logo and a spinning cheerio. (It looks more like a clock.)
I would like to:
- connect to this HD and copy off old pictures, etc
- re-install the OS from scratch. (It came with Snow Leopard but can support High Sierra.)
- install a new HD if necessary
I am guessing that to get the data off of the HD, I would use a Thunderbolt cable to simulate the HD as a slave? (Yes I have another Mac that I can use.)
