Question: Will an APFS SSD from my dead Mac boot up in another machine?
2011 MBP17" joined the ranks of multiple logic board failures. You know the feeling.
I had already installed an SSD, and it worked great. Formatted APFS and running High Sierra.
Can I remove this SSD from my now non-working MBP and boot from it in another machine without formatting it? I really need to trim it down in size so it can fit on a newer machine with less storage.
I DO have a Time Machine backup, but don't really want to erase this SSD leaving me with ONLY that TM data.
Can I pop it into a 2010 MBP13" and expect it to just fire right up? Can I put this SSD in a dock and expect other Macs to mount it?
