Mein Problem

Wanted to save this poor Powerbook G4 and change the broken HD.

Meine Reparatur

The iFixit Tuto was great!

Mein Rat

Make sure your CD drive still works or pre-install your OS on the drive if you can. My CD-Rom was supposed to work still but when I had finished to replace the HD, the CD drive was ejecting all CDs including the DVD to re-install OS X. You'll need to re-install your os using another Mac through firewire (using the current HD as target drive) or an external firewire DVD-rom in this situation.
