HD replacement temp sensor
I'm replacing original Hitachi HDS722020 2 TB drive in iMac 27" EMC 2374 (which had only 2 pins) with Seagate ST 3100.
I can't tell from description or picture into which pins to plug the temp sensor. I gather close to power cable, but picture looks confusing. Is it the first pair of pins next to power cable with the black on top? Or the first two horizontally?
Yes, the disk is the correct number for this 27" and is the original OS 10.6.2. Again I can use target to reformat the drive etc. Verify etc. But When I try to use "C" only Apple & gear for > 35 min. "Option" with start up disk in 27" shows only the start up disk and gives Apple & Gear. " Shift" does not work for either. If I target with my 24" start up loaded into the new Seagate the drive will show on the 27' but not load. This is what I tried because I was not able to load the original 27' disk because it is "crossed out" when opened on the 24"
I have tried several newer start up disks-each time reformating without ever getting a boot. I am thinking I'll see if I can find another set of start ups for this computer, though it does not "looked" damaged. Dan, thanks for the help.
