Dead Drive Disaster

by max

My Problem

The hard drive failed. The original owner was going to throw it away and asked me to dispose of it. I couldn't let it go to waste.

My Fix

I was alittle nervous I'd taken apart many computers but not that many All in ones. Not to mention the last Mac I worked on was an older Power PC series, but the guides and pictures online answered most of my questions.

My Advice

Buy the right tools and do the research ifixit has a great shop and knowledge base
