iMac G5 20" Model A1076 Hard Drive Replacement

5 - 15 Minuten


Mein Problem

Old HD crashed... iMac was still in good shape (screen & power supply replaced a few years ago under Apple care extended warranty)... Repair costs by a shop was cost prohibitive... Nothing to lose by doing repair myself...

Meine Reparatur

Very well... Online instructions were spot on; pics were very helpful... Old HD came out; new HD went in... Powered up the iMac, reinstalled OS, upgraded to Snow Leopard... Works great!!!

Mein Rat

Got my torx bits from Lowes ($15)... A pocket knife is handy for removing the thermal sensor off the HD... Whole process took less than 30 minutes with an iPad to follow instructions on.
