Hello,
My go-to for Mac repairs is iFixit.com. They have very good step by step instructions.
Step One: locate the EMC number printed on the bottom of the foot of your iMac
Step Two: http://www.ifixit.com/Device/iMac
Select either G5 or Intel and the model that matches your EMC number. A link to he hard drive replacement instructions will be on the next page. Click on it.
if you don't have another computer to view the instructions while you are working on the iMac, print them as follows:
Scroll down a bit, right above the first image, you'll see
Formats: PDF XML Embed
click PDF and print
Read through the instructions twice before you begin, make sure you have all your tools laid out, a clean place to work and a sheet of paper. Every screw you remove, put it on the paper, and note where it came from. Take your time and follow each step.

If it looks too complicated for your skill level, there might be a certified apple repair store in your area who can do it for a fee.

SOURCE: replace iMac g5 20 hard drive

Hi John
Try reinstalling via your macbook pro but this way round.Put the Leopard Disk into the Macbook and then start the Macbook in Target mode.on the iMac start it up and hold down the Option (or Alt) key then wait.after a short while you will be offered the HD in the MacBook and the DVD. Choose the DVD and see what happens.
What happens when you do it the other war arounds is that you are installing a startup system for the MacBook onto the HD of the G5 and not the system for the G5. The installer uses the firmware of the motherboard that is running the install to select the correct version.
Another issue is that the disk formatting may be wrong. it's unlikely seeing that you used disk utility from the DVD, but it is possible.
Let us know how you get on.

How to replace solid state hard drive on imac computer


Hi Felix

Pretty simple really.... once you get the iMac opened!
See below

Simply find the existing hard drive, disconnect and slip it out.
You might have to remove a couple of screw in locating studs from the old drive and add to the new drive.
The connectors should match up with the existing cable.
Called SATA (Serial ATA)
The temperature sensor is stuck to the outside of the drive, carefully peel it off and stick it on the new drive.

Use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to make a clone copy of your existing drive or install a new OS X (Downloadt off Apple Site)
Good Luck

I'll assume you know that Maverics, Yosemite OS X are free to download. And the latest El Capitan is due in Days.

G5 stuck on white screen


Have you got the Snow Leopard boot disc that came with your machine?

Pop it in the iMac, restart the computer with the "C" key held down. That will boot the imac to the DISC. Once there go to the top menu and run a Disk Utility Repair on the hard drive.

Let me know what happens, I can help with this ;)

Can't get imac to boot up everything looks fine then I get a black box with white lettering saying error in start-up . code number post/16/2048DIMMO/J22, thanks for any help. I ran the hard-drive test and...


Sounds like a kernel panic code. You may be missing a piece of the OS code due to a Hard Drive error from a power issue or whatever. You may need to reinstall your OS. Start up from the cd and save all your data you can to a flash drive or external hard drive and then do a clean install.
