Will a crucial M550 SSD run on a early 2009 MacBook (5,2) and HDD+SDD?

Hi,

As the title says. Will the M550 run on an early 2009 model (5,2). I’ve read something about SATA (2 or 3) cables not supporting, or at least not the ones from the Optical Drive.

And thats the point. I want to replace the Optical Drive with my SSD and run both with my HDD, if this is possible? So that’s my 2nd question, will the HDD and SDD both be able to run.

Your system is only SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) So you will need to make sure the drives you use are able to run at this slower I/O.

The current Crucial SSD’s line are fixed SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) and won’t work. The Crucial M550 SSD was the last dual speed drive Crucial made. So if that is what you have that will work in your system.

The optical drive bay is PATA not SATA! so you’ll need an adapter frame 9.5 mm PATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure to mount your drive.

Now the tricky part! Which drive do you put into the Optical bay carrier. Keep in mind PATA is very, very slow! So putting the SSD in the optical drive will be slower than your current HDD! If you make it the startup drive. So that won’t be a good idea! Instead you’ll want the HDD in the optical drive and place the SSD in the HD bay, and making it the boot drive.

But! We still have one more problem! The HD bay has crash guard where the optical drive does not! So placing the HDD in the optical drive puts it at risk of crashing if you bang the system while the drive is running.

So… While you could do it I don’t recommend it!

I would recommend getting a larger SSD, and as luck has it Samsung SSD’s are still auto sense! So you could go with a Samsung 860 EVO Note the spec sheets I’ve posted here both list SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) support. What ever drive you go with needs to list it otherwise its safe to assume the drive is SATA III asa most are now fixed SATA III.

Thank you for your answer! And how about two SSD’s?

And I’ve got two more questions. I have 3 macbooks laying around, I am trying to get the best parts of them. I have got, two late models 2007 (3,1) and one early 2009 model. I'm trying to combine these into one laptop.

So I was thinking of getting the most out of the early 2009 model (5,2). So I want to take the best CPU and GPU for this model. I see the late 2007 runs a CPU at 2,2Ghz but is this a better CPU? Any advise? And I want to upgrade the RAM to 6 gig. Since it got the option to it, and I have read its able to combine 2+4 GB. But they need to match specs, which ones will match?

The point in using the optical drive in this system to host any drive it's very slow!

So while you can by-pass the crash guard issue using an SSD vs HDD. Its not very cost effective! getting a bigger SSD is a cheaper direction and you gain the full SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) I/O speed.

There is no upgrade possibly in any of the MacBooks The CPU & GPU logic is soldered to the logic board so your only option is to swap out the logic board. And that's the rub! These systems are not worth the effort given the limitations of addressable RAM & CCFL based backlight.

Figure out your costs before you make the leap! Don't forget to look at Used MacBook Pro's both the older Unibody models and the newer retina series. I just found a nice 2015 retina for $300 USD. All it needed was a new display $450 not a bad deal for $750! 16 GB & 500 SSD.

Sound good! Thanks for the explanation. In the meanwhile I found myself a new Macbook Pro mid 2017. Different cookie. But it got water damage. Gin-tonic. 2 years ago. Declared for death by Apple technicians. Now I am trying to restore it.

@danj "So while you can by-pass the crash guard issue using an SSD vs HDD. Its not very cost effective! getting a bigger SSD is a cheaper direction and you gain the full SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) I/O speed."

But what if I just add an SSD in the optical drive bay and leave the HDD bet at his place? Is that an option?

Crucial says it will and I ordered one of these drives for a 2009 2.26GHz MacBook yesterday.
