2.2.2.1. If your computer has crashed, or is otherwise inoperable, but you still have any sort of files on there, I can retrieve them for you. No questions asked. You can bring an external hard drive with you to store all of the files, or I can burn them into DVD data discs for a small fee for each one. We can meet in the place of your choosing, as my operation is mobile. Please call or text if you are interested. Nate - 356.2755

3. Switched Problem

3.1. If the drive hasn't been re-formatted and had OS X (from the Install Discs that came with the NEW machine) installed that is exactly what your problem is! The version of OS X that was on the MBP Unibody is specific to that hardware installation and will not work in any other hardware configuration.
