This is a project that was kind of dumb to get into. Tearing apart an
old iMac I only use to run my scanner because the optical drive was
croaked and i wanted to change the boot to SSD. Once you have a computer that boots up quickly you get spoiled.
it was a lot more work than I anticipated. But your instructions were good and it actually worked. Finding software to clone the boot drive on 10.5 was no picnic, but the whole thing was kind of a triumph. Thanks for doing what you do
This is not a job for the faint of heart. You have to remove the monitor to get to anything. Frankly, although it was a lot of fun and works great, I would not recommend it for the lame reason I had. That being said, happy I did it.
