What Apple doesn't tell us !

I own an intel iMac 20 inch EMC 2118 and had a hard time installing Snow Leopard. Both 10.4 and 10.5 work great on my machine but 10.6 fails with unrepairable disk errors. I found that a small disk error (bad sector) that can be corrected under 10.4 and 10.5 becomes a catastrophe under 10.6 due to the new structure for gaining maximum disk space.

I thus replaced my original 250 GB with a 500 GB drive and did a clean install from scratch.

There is a definite possibility however that I could have saved my original drive by marking the sectors as defective using software like Drive Genius 3. The minimum Apple could have done would have been to provide advanced warning of a possible incompatibility issue between hard drives and the 10.6 Mac OS X.

I followed the procedure for hard drive replacement on this site and had no real issues. There is however a small note I would like to share with all of you. On step 3 of the procedure, when it is time to release the bezel latch using a card, press the bezel tightly in order to reduce the pressure on the latch before releasing it with the card. Then, pull on the bezel ind it comes right off.

I sure hope someone will benefit from my findings.

Best regards,
