Because the SSD (SATA) has to be installed with an adapter (SATA~IDE), the SSSD has to be removed from it’s case, to fit in the powerbook. So I packed it with foam, to prevent it, banging around in the powerbook case. Ooh! too hot! I reassembled it again, with minimal foam packing, taking care not to cover any of the chips or circuitry of the SSD. Now it’s a lot cooler and better!.
Also a warning, don’t do any security updates, if you’ve got a RAID 0 HFS volume. The ‘security update’ tries to update the RAID 0 members to the APFS file system, resulting in KABOOM!, fortunately I had a backup and a clone so could restore with CCCloner :) same same for Mojave.
Great Guide, I put an SSD in my 12”b Powerbook G4, everything worked first time and this guide was spot on! :)
I should note, that I got a new, different, caddy, to fix the problems I was having earlier.
AFAIK, Mac OS X doesn’t need to designate “slave”or other. Just stick it in, format it, use it. :)
An update - Success! - So it works - 1/. clone existing 10.13.6 install to ext disk with Carbon Copy Cloner, 2/.boot from ext disk, 3/. make RAID 0 (HFS not APFS) with the two 1 Tb SSDs in the Macbook Pro 4/. clone original install from ext disk to RAID 0, 5/.Reboot with RAID 0 as startup disk. Mine hung on a black screen, during the start up process, even after 1 hour, it was still stuck, but I force rebooted with the power button and then it worked! It now boots like a scalded cat ) Very fast.
Hi, what caddy did you purchase from Amazon?
The guide is very good. It would appear that I can’t put a 1Tb SSD in the Optical drive caddy/bay and have it work. The OS formats the SSD, but will only copy files of less than ~3Mb, so either, as noted elsewhere, 750GB is the limit for the Optical bay/caddy, or the caddy I have is no good for 1Tb. I planned on having a RAID 0 with two 1Tb SSDs in my MacBook Pro 13” mid 2012. From an external boot, I got as far as making the RAID 0, but as soon as any files went on it, it blew up. So the drives are OK and I now have a 1Tb main drive and the DVD drive back in, the 2nd 1Tb SSD is still OK and is in an external enclosure working well. Add to this fun, that 10.13.6 is temperamental with RAID and it’s been an interesting couple of days. Apparently the way to get a High Sierra install, onto a RAID 0, is to clone with Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper, to another external drive and then clone back to the RAID 0 (HFS+ not APFS) when it’s made. But as I seem to have hit a size limit with the 1Tb SSDs I gave up.
