This drive was installed by Apple as a result of the HD replacement program for late 2009 iMac's, no charge for installation, I just had to stare at a blank desk for a week
Great drive. Paid to have installed. Compatible with late 2009 iMac 27".
I purchased LaCie 6TB Thunderbolt drive but I returned because the drive makes horrible cricking kind of noise. Them I purchased 3TB drive for my iMac Mid 2011. Same here that it keeps making cracking sound all day and night long after a few minutes interval. This is normal to all Seagate drive which drives me crazy. It must be there severe engineering flaw which they are not at situation to recall. I bought western digital green drives and I'm happy. I never gonna buy seagate drive unless they correct the noise factor. Seems like the drive cries for some reason.
The site listed this drive as being compatible with a mac mini. Obvious when it arrived that it's way too big. Oh well, now I need an enclosure.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
Could you please advise:
1. Does the new SSD require formatting before use? I intend each to have only one partition.
I am running Win7-64 on an ASUS P868-V Pro motherboard.
Thank you for any help you can give.
