There are many benefits to adding a second hard drive to your iMac such as improved speeds, greater storage space, and less heartache when installing new software. Use this guide to install one using our optical bay hard drive enclosure.

  1. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive, Access Door: 1 단계, 이미지 1/2 Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive, Access Door: 1 단계, 이미지 2/2
    • Loosen the two Phillips screws securing the access door to your iMac.

    • Both screws remain captive within the access door.

    • Remove the access door.

    • Before beginning the repair, unplug the computer and press and hold the power switch for 20-30 seconds, to discharge internal capacitors.

  2. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive, Front Bezel: 2 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Remove the following screws along the lower edge of your iMac:

    • Three 6 mm T8 Torx screws

    • One 8 mm T8 Torx screw (Right side of the RAM slot on 2105)

  3. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 3 단계, 이미지 1/3 Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 3 단계, 이미지 2/3 Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 3 단계, 이미지 3/3
    • Re-orient your iMac so it sits upright on the stand.

    • Insert a plastic card up into the corner of the air vent slot near the top of the rear case.

    • Push the card toward the top of the iMac to release the front bezel latch.

    • Pull the front bezel away from the rear case.

    • Repeat this process for the other side of the front bezel.

    • It may be necessary to apply several layers of duct tape to the top of the access card to aid in releasing the latches. Or use two cards for the additional thickness.

    • If the bezel refuses to release, try lifting the lower edge of the front bezel slightly away from the rear case (detailed in the next few steps) and repeat the latch release process.

    • Lay your iMac stand-side down on a flat surface.

    • To lift the front bezel off the iMac, simultaneously:

    • Use your thumbs to press in the RAM arms and hold the iMac down.

    • Use your index fingers to pull the small bridge of material on the front bezel toward yourself.

    • Pull the front bezel up with your index fingers.

    • Once the small bridge of material has cleared the RAM arms, lift the front bezel by its lower edge just enough to clear the bottom edge of the rear case.

    • Disconnect the microphone cable.

    • Disconnect the camera cable by pulling its connector away from the socket on the camera board.

    • The camera cable connector and socket are delicate and easily bent. Remove with caution.

  8. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive, Lower EMI Shield: 8 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Peel up the lower EMI shield from the rear case.

    • It is only necessary to peel the shield up from three sides. Leave it attached to the display.

    • If you happen to rip the EMI shield, use a piece of foil tape to cover the tear.

  9. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 9 단계, 이미지 1/1

    • Allow the lower EMI shield to hang down from the display.

    • Remove the four 7.5 mm T10 Torx screws securing the display to the rear case.

    • The screws are recessed, so a thin magnetic screwdriver aids in removal. Most bit drivers are too short to reach these screws.

  13. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 13 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Lift the lower edge of the display and rotate it toward the top edge of your iMac.

    • Disconnect both inverter cables from the inverter board.

    • These connectors are seated very tightly in their sockets. It is helpful to use your fingernails or the tip of a spudger to push the ears on either side of the connectors to dislodge them from their sockets. A small pair of hemostats helps a lot.

  15. Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Dual Hard Drive: 15 단계, 이미지 1/1

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the optical drive ribbon cable connector up off the logic board.

    • The connector is most easily removed when prying from the top or bottom of the connector.

    • Bend the optical drive ribbon cable back away from the logic board.

    • Be very careful when moving the optical drive ribbon cable as it is delicate and easily ripped.

    • Apple's "engineers" didn't learn much about deflection and material stiffness when they went to "college", so this optical drive is particularly difficult to remove because the bracket flexes too much. The next few steps require some patience and a good amount of force.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger into the gap between the optical drive and its bracket until it contacts the chassis.

    • Grab the spudger as close to the surface of the optical drive as you can, then depress the release tab with your thumb while pulling toward yourself.

    • The wedge shape of the spudger may cause it to slip out of the gap toward yourself. Be sure to press the spudger in toward the rear case while squeezing the release tab.
