MacBook won't detect startup disk, internal flash drive. Bad Flash?
All of a sudden my Macbook froze and after restarting the file with the question mark came up. I tried to load the HDD but it was missing. Since the SSD doesn't have a cable to connect, is it probably a bad SSD?
I tried to boot it up with the alt key pressed but it gives a black screen with the apple and then a circle with a cross through it. I can't reinstall because it gives an error and says to reboot only to restart and get the black screen again. I have a TimeMachine backup available but it will not allow me to reinstall.
I ordered a new Flash Drive via OWC and installed it, now my Macbook Pro is working like new! It was rather expensive for the new drive but instead of bringing it to a Shop and spending even more, I followed the instructions from this site and the install went off with out a hitch.
