iMac Intel 27" EMC 2309 and 2374 Hard Drive Replacement

1 hour

Moderate

My Problem

My iMac is 7 years old and was getting slow and glitchy

My Fix

I asked an ifixit staff to guide me to the right hardware because you can't just throw any old HD in a mac. For barely more than $200 I went from a slow 1TB 8g computer to a perfect 4TB 12g computer!!! It was pretty seamless! Everything you need for understanding of the process is found online, and most of it on the ifixit site.

My Advice

Make sure to:

1. make a time machine backup

2. make a bootable USB for the OS - google this process

3. after the hardware install, format the new drive - enter disk utility on startup

4. install OS - choose after exiting disk utility

5. import old files
