Does it use generic SATA 3.5" HDD?
Is the HDD in an iMac EMC 2266 a regular generic 3.5" SATA disc, or are there specific disk only for Mac computers?
I've seen the need for moving temp sensor cables and a support pad from the OEM disc to the new one, but it's not very clear if it's a generic disc or not.
The reason for asking is that I have a 2 TB Seagate external disc, but the USB 2.0 interface is too slow for managing big files and therefore I want to replace the internal 320 GB SATA drive instead.
Now I'm unsure if it'll work or not? And i'd not like to do trial and error here! Is it also doable to just make an image of the old disk to the new one and it'll be a smooth ride without any re-installs etc.?
I'm kind of new with the Mac computers...
Any input is appreciated!
Is this a good question?
