That is my 4th HD substitute however 1st SSD. I’ve a TM b/u ready to make use of & often simply re-install the os from a disk however forgot I used to be on El Capitan earlier than altering the drive.
The DVD drive spit out each authentic set up disks & a Snow Leopard set up disk & ignored the TM b/u even tho it allowed me to pick the exterior at one level however didn’t present its contents.
I ready one other exterior w El Capitan downloaded from an apple assist web site however now all I get is a grey display screen – no ? no Apple emblem, even tho beforehand they had been each exhibiting up relying on key combo. THIS exterior additionally has different recordsdata on it – does that make a distinction?
does the bootup disk should be devoted to only an an set up operate? or is the SSD interfering by some means?
Most up-to-date steps:
Command + R => gray display screen
Command + Choice + R => gray display screen
Choice + R => gray display screen
when it powers up the Apple chime is heard however then that is it. nothing. nada.
do not know if it is the SSD or what. I am typing this from an iMac which is 2011, additionally on El Capitan, if there’s one thing I can do as well from it w/o endangering each machines? which might actually suck lemons!
