Just because it worked before, is not guarantee that it is functioning correctly now.
Of course, the water damage may be more than you realize.
I have a 13inch macbook pro (early 2011) which suffered mild water damage. I cleaned the whole logic board, and no major damage seems to be done.
I currently use the original hard drive as an external hard drive, and formatted it since I did not need any data on it.
I am trying to install lion on my Macbook Pro using a CD and bootable USB I created when buying Lion from the appstore and I have used it in the past.So I know it works.
Problem is when I try and boot of it I do not get past the Apple Logo with the spinning gear and white background?
Just for the sake of it, I tried to install Windows on it and it worked and runs properly
Any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated with getting Lion installed?
I tried starting up the Mac in verbose mode and got the message. It stops at this message.
Apple.....Ethernet: 0 0 setFixed Speed - logic error -speed any?
