Install newer media keyboard on an older Macbook Pro
Authored by: emdls on Jul 29, '10 12:42:05AM

This hint was a lifesaver! I needed to replace a d^&* British keyboard on a Macbook pro I bought - both because I hated the key layout, and because I spilled liquid on it. After three weeks of waiting for a -free shipping- new mac US keyboard to arrive, I installed it... Only to discover the mac didn't auto recognized it.

Turns out, it's because it's the case top that has the ID, not the keyboard - as this hint mentions. And nothing I tried was fixing the problem of tons of keys being mapped improperly, especially the special function keys - until I followed this hint.

So, if you too have "switched" or reinstalled a different ANZI/ASCII Euro or US keyboard on your Mac Laptop, and you're running into keyboard mapping problems - follow this hint - worked like charm!
