Replaced 2007 iMac HD with Crucial m4 SSD

Mijn probleem

The original HD was starting to crash quite frequently and space management was becoming an issue.

Mijn oplossing

The repair went great. I followed the directions "iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210 Hard Drive Replacement" and everything went smoothly. This was the first time that I'd worked on a computer and was surprised at just how small some of the connectors are. I was also amazed at the amount of dust in there, which I blew away where I could. The directions in the guide were very straightforward and made every task very simple. I used an Icy Dock converter to house the SSD and I ended up feeling that I was replacing like-for-like - very easy. I then booted up from an external CCC clone and found the new drive in Disk Utility. Once partitioned it took a couple of hours to clone the external drive onto the SSD, which I then made my start-up drive.

Mijn advies

1: Use a 2.5" to 3.5" converter to make the SSD placement very simple.

2: Make sure to follow the directions in the guide about cleaning the display and back of the glass screen before replacing it. With the amount of dust floating around following the work it took about five minutes to make sure that the display was spotless.
