iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2544 Hard Drive Replacement

1 hour


My Problem

HDD was very slow and I wanted to upgrade it to an SSD.

My Fix

The repair went well, after some fidgeting the screen came off. Be very, very careful when cutting the tape at the top of the screen. The LCD connections are there and I broke one, which ruined the screen. You only need to push in about a half an inch at the top. The tape on the sides is much thicker.

My Advice

Just be very very careful at the top of the screen, otherwise the repair is very easy.
