I have a used, I am guessing 2009 White Macbook. ( the bottom has the battery that you use a coin to turn to remove battery).I have put a new hard drive in and hit Cmd R but only get the flashing questionmark icon. I also tried Cmd Option R but same. I cant get into Internet recovery mode, ethernet cable is connected.
I have then tried to format the drive in late 2011 Macbook pro and put installed Mountain Lion and pop the drive back into the White MacBook but that said I cant use it…I then took the HD out and formatted it again on the 2011 MacBook Pro popped it cack into White MacBook and trying Cmd R or Cmd Option R only to not get passed Flashing questionmark icon.
I am totally lost as to how to get this new HD to install the white macbook, how to get into recovery mode and install whatever osx it can
Any help would be great
