System not recognizing the new drive
This system is a late 2009 27” iMac. I”m not sure of the exact EMC / CPU.
I replaced the drive with Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD SATA 6Gb/s Flash Accelerated (8GB) Performance Hard Drive
I purchased the OWC In-line Digital Thermal Sensor from MacSales.com
Full disclosure i ruined the display cable removing it from the system. So i purchased this replacement from ebay
Put it all together and gave it a hard reset (ctrl opt P R) and it boots to a white screen with a mouse that can be moved.
It wont boot to Option R to get to my time machine. But it did recognize my Leopard usb drive that i created from my DVD. But when attempting to boot from it, i get the flashing ?folder icon. Also holding down just Option doesn’t show attached usb hd’s.
To me it seems like the system is not recognizing the SSHD. What else can be done to get the system to see the SSHD?
