Will the Samsung EVO 860 SATA III SSD drive work in my system?
I'm looking for answers regarding the new Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB 2.5” SATA III SSD compatibility? Does anyone out there try to install this new internal hard drive to an old late 2011 MacBook Pro?
I assume I'll need an upgrade hard drive cable like the one who installed the 850 EVO but what else should I know to upgrade my laptop to an SSD internal drive?
Same story for me with MacBook Pro Late 2011, even the Apple genius’ worked on it for 2 hrs couldn’t figure it out.

I installed it with no problem. First I did a fresh Time Machine backup. I also formatted the ssd to mac os extended(journaled ) prior to switching out the drives in the MacBook Pro 2011. No wiring added, it just plugged in like on the old drive. Option,command,R at boot up. Then installed from time machine. Took about two hours to transfer all the files. Great speed difference .

Hey benny, after you format new HD, then I would choose backup from time machine. Does that install the operation system also and all my data at once?

I have major issues getting the SSD to the new APFS format. Unless I convert the SSD to the new format I cant clone anything on the drive. I can use the drive as a normal boring external drive but thats it. I am devasted as I wanted to upgrade my old HDD to a SSD but with Catalina it does nt seem to work

Heureka: In Disk Utility, near the close/minimize/fullscreen buttons, you can see a "View" mode dropdown menu. Set the view mode to "Show All Devices", then you'll see the "root" drives. Click on a root drive, and then click on the "Erase" button. Now an option to change the "Scheme" from Master Boot Record to GUID appears in the Erase subwindow.
That did the trick. FFS
