    Default Re: MacBook Air Rev A with RunCore 1.8" Pro IV PATA ZIF Drive *ZIF PROBLEMS*

    I installed a Runcore on my macbook air Rev. A. It worked fine for a while, but twice I have had to reinstall the system because it won't boot (will not go beyond the grey apple screen). Any ideas on what might be causing the problem?

    Now I am not doing a recovery but a clean installation and the system said it could not copy the files to the disk. However, when running disk utility's verify disk, it appears ok.

    Hints, anyone?

    Thanks in advance

    I think you have little choice but to get the SSD out of your macbook air and then put it in the metal case you got with the RunCore and connect it to the USB port.
    Then hold the Alt key pressed right after you press the power button on the MBA and try to boot your MBA from the USB connected SSD drive.
    If that boots then you probably have a bad cable or the cable was not connected correctly but to be sure you could also try to install MacOS on the SSD while you have the disk connected to USB to make extra sure.
    Also, since you're going to have the MBA open anyway reinstall the old HDD back in the system because it will make other tests possible.

    Hi flyglobe,

    Anyone can DIY it. It's not difficult. I swapped mine in less than 10min. Step by step instructions here:

    Installing MacBook Air Hard Drive Replacement - iFixit

    You can skip Steps 3 to 7 as you are only taking out and replacing the hdd. Make sure you get the right version (ZIF of PATA or LIF for SATA II) for your Mac Air.

    Forget it VIPNYC, they are ignoring us, it passed more than a week of our post. RuncoreMarketing aka Matt, an runcore user are online but they are not going to take any responsibility on our problem. Now they are just marketers...

    Itīs really anoying...

    NExt time OCZ, samsung, intel,...PhotoFast or any other manufacturer that take responsibility on their own products.

    Matt, thats Bull**** and you know it...

    You seem to have done lots to help USA users, but those of us non USA are out in the cold...

    by email, and on this forum, i am getting NOTHING...

    I still have the problem of UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME with my runcore in my PC, nobody will tell me how to determine my firmware version...

    The only solution I have seen tor the problem above seems to be to run chkdisk /r from the XP install disc, (yes I have one) and that has come from Microsoft.

    I did note that there seems to be a problem with some of the IDE drives set to CS, instead of Master...

    My particular Runcore is a 2 1/2" IDE Pro IV, there should be provision for jumpering beside the IDE interface, but the drive install and support documentation is so lousy, nothing is said....

    Seems China, which loves using CS in IDE systems doesnt realise us westerners like using the Master/Slave with jumpers configuration...

    Such a Happy thought that I could simply fit a 2mm jumper to some external pins on my SSD HDD and all my problems disappear...

    But MY thread has never ever been answered...
