Answer to "Will the Samsung EVO 860 SATA III SSD drive work in my system?"Hello, I just tried to install an EVO 860 250GB out of the box on my beginning 2011 MacBook Pro 8,2 A1304 i7 8GB RAM unsuccessfully. The installation process stops at first reboot before language selection with the typical error message that cannot be installed and reboot. I don't plan changing the HDD cable (which by the way already comes with a plastic tape on it to protect it) by now but will see if any firmware updates or so help in the near future. I just wanted to contribute with some information that may help others wasting much time on it. Cheers!
Answer to "MacBook Air only boots to Linux"Hello Nav, I wonder if you solved that situation with your Mac because I am facing the same situation. I suspected RAM memory failure so I run MemTest86+ and Apple Diagnostics holding the "D" key when powering on the MacBook air, all with OK results. Running Ubuntu 18.4 from USB and installing it is okay. All devices and options seem to work fine but the Factime Camera for which I believe there are not built in drivers for yet. Nevertheless, the Mac will load the progress bar completely but stay in a loopback that can be seen with the verbose option (holding Command + V keys while powering on). I tried creating different Maverick, Sierra and High Sierra USB boot disks from 8 to 32GB unsuccessfully and always with the same result: getting stuck once the progress bar has reached the end. Still struggling with after three working days with no other option than using Ubuntu 18.4 so far without the camera but I need it for Skype, so too bad. Thank you and with kind regards from Spain!
