[* black] Disconnect the hard drive data cable connector from the logic board by pulling it straight up from its socket.
+[* icon_note] The SATA connector on most iMacs tends to stick in its socket on the logic board. If you are having trouble disconnecting the SATA cable, insert a [product|IF145-012|metal spudger] or any other thin tool into the gap between the SATA connector and its socket and twist the spudger's shaft to safely separate the two pieces.
