Well, I finally took out the harddrive. It was quite easy, and the hardest part was putting together the adapter ( the guys at the store had me unsure of whether I had a SATA drive or an IDE in the iMac, so I simply got a universal connector with USB ). It all worked out. ( It's a SATA drive, as I was nearly sure of anyway, but erred on caution, as I didn't want to return to the store ).
The main problem I'm having is moving everything over to my mini! And the incompatibility of old programs like Appleworks and Mac Windows ( I have Parallels 8, so hopefully I'll be able to salvage all of my work in Windows - ie. the work that pays the bills... ).

iFixit has guide detailed open and review each specific model.
It not holding to condemn the device yet.
I've seen almost apocalyptic entries in this forum before buying more and more technological junk learn something about what we have!
Bad capacitors were inside the AC Power Unit
