Internal Seagate 1TB Hybrid boot drive not recognized

Texto:

I'm trying to install a new hybrid drive in a Macbook's standard HDD bay. I formatted it on a Core i3 iMac, and installed Mavericks.  It works fine externally (via USB) and will boot on the iMac.  But the Macbook Pro (Core 2 Duo) does not recognize the boot partition, and just shows the folder [?] on startup.

There  are two partitions on the drive (300GB and 700GB).  Seagate says the SATA III is backwards compatible, but Mayer here suggested using a jumper to drop the transfer speed.  I'm not sure how best to do that (can I just fashion a jumper from a paperclip?) or if it would work on this model.

Is it possible the Core 2 Duo will not support a drive this large?  Thanks for any responses.
