My mid 2007 24" iMac recently died.
I was wondering what options I have with regards to what hard drive/or SSD I should get?
Any help appreciated.
Please let me know if you have any other specific questions about this upgrade.
Any thoughts or pointers would be hugely welcome.
Regards to all
I recently upgraded my Western Digital HDD to a larger Solid State Crucial M500 480GB drive, (using
the crucial easy laptop install kit).
I cloned the HDD, using the automatic procedure in Acronis TrueImage HD using a boot CD, however, the Windows Update in the newly
installed SSD does not function and gives the message "windows update cannot currently check for updates becuase the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer".
I previously tried all other combinations in cloning the HDD to SSD with Acronis TrueImage HD, to no avail.
The computer was checked for viruses and malware prior to the cloning procedure with Bitdefender Antivirus 2013 and is virus free.
Also, internet explorer is not downloading files from hyperlinks. It will display the option for save as, open, save but will
proceed and open the download dialog box when left-mouse-clicking on hyperlinks of files which I choose to download and will not
display the image format jpg when I right-mouse-click on an image link and choose save image as but display the options for png and
bmp only. I installed the Chrome browser which worked, the problem with internet explorer persists.
I give you a link to my windowsupdate.log file,
I consider the windows update malfunction to a be serious problem, thank you in advance for any assistance.
