iMac Disk Drive Replacement

by hburchnall

My Problem

In preparation for the upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks, I finally decided to replace the original internal Apple Disk Drive with a fresh one from you folks. While the old drive was still operating fine, I knew it was on "borrowed time" as the iMac is 6 years old.

My Fix

Both your written instructions online and the Video were EXCELLENT! It does get a bit scary to open up your iMac for the first time since leaving the Apple factory in 2007, but it all went perfectly. Thanks.

My Advice

Keep up the good work iFixIt!
