Replace with A1225 2008 logic board 820-2301-A
I have a 2008 24" iMac with EMC2211
Most of the time stuck in boot loop (cd-rom sound first, then no post, 5 seconds, then cd-rom sound, no post, 5 seconds, then cd-rom sound, no post, etc). - Type "A" boot loop
Sometimes stuck in boot loop (starting sound, bootup screen, reset, starting sound, bootup screen, reset, etc) - type "B" boot loop
Attempted all the "usual" resets, unplugging the power cord, replugging. This will usually make it go past the type "A" boot loop, but causes type "B" boot loop.
Trying the keyboard shortcut reset (command/option/fn key? or whichever keys they were) doesn't achieve anything.
Tried installation disk, but iMac took forever to try load the disk, and in the mean time, reset and got stuck in type "A" boot loop.
MacStore said logicboard needs to be replaced.
Can I replace the logic board of the 2211 with this:
A1225 2008 logic board 820-2301-A?
Is this a good question?
