What could cause this then?
Macbook decides its not going to start just sits at the apple logo with the spinny thing, been fine since I installed a petrol 3 sata 128gig drive a month ago.
Removing the battery and putting back it *could* get it to start
If the power supply cable is plugged in then it wont start.
Tried everything before eventually wiping the SSD clean and reinstalling a brand new copy of OSX.
Tried again this time making sure to set to one partition just incase that peskey recovery drive was there.
Ran hardware test, no probs.
Did a PRAM and SMC reset, left the battery out for an hour.
Ran a disk programme over every sector of the SSD no problems.
Eventually I put in my old HD and the mac starts up first time every time. Put ssd back in, no dice.
Whats gone wrong? I want to take it back to the shop but its been a few weeks now, probably over a month, what will I tell them to get a replacement? It seems to work, I can install Lion onto it no issues from a USB stick, then when it restarts just sits there at the apple logo.
