I have a 2007 Macbook Pro 15 inch. When I turn it on, eventually I get the message that the hard drive can't be found. I've replaced the computer with a new model, and I want to dispose of it. But I know I need to clear all the personal information off it. How can I do it? Can I boot it up by connecting it to my new Macbook pro?
