New Aura Pro SSD not recognized
Here is the situation:
- The original SSD in my MacBookPro died (verified by diagnostics run by the genius bar at the apple store).
- I purchased and installed a "240GB OWC Aura Pro X SSD (Blade Only)" from MacSales.
- The new SSD is not recognized using recovery.
- I only have access to windows machines to try and revive the MacBookPro.
The MacSales site states:
"macOS 10.13 and later versions include an EFI (firmware) update that
adds support for the Aura Pro X to the host computer. If you do not first
update the host firmware by installing macOS 10.13 or later onto the
existing SSD, the Aura Pro X will not function properly once installed."
I'm pretty sure that the original drive had High Sierra on it because I tried to reinstall OSX by booting with Command-R and it was trying to install High Sierra (before visiting the Apple store).
Is there a way to make a bootable USB with High Sierra on it using windows? Or another way to get out of this mess using the tools I have (a MacBookPro with an un-formatted SSD)?
