iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210 Hard Drive Replacement

1 hora


Meu Problema

The hard drive failed on my wife's iMac.

Minha Solução

I had never opened an iMac before. I followed step-by-step guide and was done in less than 30 min.

Meu Conselho

1. Have the correct tools handy - the right screwdrivers and definitely the suction cups.

2. Have some double-sided tape to re-attach pieces you'll remove from the original hard drive.

3. Have a can of compressed air to clean dust from the machine.

4. This might just be me, but when it came to removing the "bezel" I thought it was a thin piece. It's actually the entire aluminum front of the iMac.

5. You can definitely do this without detaching the LCD if you have a helper that will prop it up for the 5 min. it will take you to swap the drive.

6. Make sure to have lint-fee cloth to clean LCD before placing glass back on.
