Everybody tells us that we should keep our devices up to date to prevent them from being hacked, infected, etc. However, a less known fact is that each new update brings functionalities that not everyone uses or even notices. These functionalities require extra calculations, hence after an update the device gets slower and generates more heat.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with an amortized or unhealthy Macbook that already works on the edge. An update that unpacks tens of gigabytes of data in a matter of hours can easily damage a weak hard drive or overheat an SSD or power regulator.
Exactly what happened to this 2017 Macbook Air Not Loading after a Software Update. It seems to be turning on, but the system is not loading.
Due to heavily overheated SSD, its controller has failed. As a result the Operating System and Data has been lost. Luckily the lost data was not that important and customer was happy to depart with it.
2017 Macbook Air Not Loading after a Software Update Repair Process
2017 was the last year when Apple manufactured Macbooks Air’s with a removable storage drive. All Macbooks these days have soldered SSD chip straight onto the Logic Board, which makes extracting the data from not turning on or responding machine nearly impossible.
Due to its modular design, we can easily replace the storage module with a new one. Here we alse have a choice to increase the storage 4 times. Something unimaginable with new Macbooks.
With newly installed SSD, we can reinstall the operating system using Internet Recovery.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the reparability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Macbook Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Macbooks having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Macbooks we repair. Check some of our Macbook Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 2000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is brilliant. That’s an extra half Macbook cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Macbook from polluting our one and only Planet.
