So today I had some downtime and figured I would improve the MDD a bit in the hardware dept.
One thing I didn’t mention was that I replaced the broken Optical Drive with a DVD burner out of a Core 2 Duo Gateway desktop and now I can use discs in the thing! Next thing was a CMOS battery as that was dead too so I found one that worked out of a 2.3GHz Power Mac G5 logic board from a G5 I recently gutted.
However there’s something that tops the other two things I replaced. Any guesses? It’s an SSD with a SATA card. This SSD is a 60GB Kingston SATAII drive that has been ran according to DriveDx for over two years. This SSD has been in almost every computer I owned since 2012 as it has been swapped between many PCs and Macs! I finally went to a 120GB in my MacBook Pro so the old 60GB needed a home in which case I found the MDD would be a good fit. Copying over files from the original hard drive now so soon I should be running at SSD speeds!
Just a minor update, figured I should share 🙂
