How to do a Clean install of Windows on a new SSD
I am trying to revive this old MacBook Air because I think they are cool. I have a new battery in, and I’ve got an SSD for it. I’ve got the windows install usb set ups nd plugged in, and I am able to make it to the boot options page where I can click on “EFI Boot” with a usb icon and then the computer freezes up. Mouse won’t move, no spinning ball, no activity light on the USB drive. This is the only boot option as the drive is brand new.
I have a windows PC and a newer MacBook Pro available to me for troubleshooting/drive creation/whatever would help. I figure as a last resort I will get a ribbon cable to SATA adapter and use my desktop to install windows onto the drive and put it back into the Air. Any links or advice are much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
