ibook G4 800 ifixit harddrive..couple tips
Long story long....(couple tips for harddrive replacement..12" ibook G4 800)
-so today i purchased a 12" ibook G4 800/640 ram.....by the noise it was making i could tell it needed a new harddrive...price was right $40 and had a old 40 gig ide drive at home. (may replace again latter with new 160gig ide drive)
-so went to ifixit website and started following there details for harddrive replacement...i have a couple minor tips (least worked for me)
-step 33...no need to disconnect speaker cable from logic board,just lean upper case against something when starting next step.
-step 37 is unnecessary (no need to remove cable from logic board)
-step 39 is also unnecessary (no need to remove harddrive cable from case)
- to get around step 37/39 just lift hardrive up and pull orange ribbon carefully away.
ps: i found it best to number plastic baggies with the step and place screws in there own separate baggies per step.
..restored a image of tiger i had from another older ibook i once owned...made install so much faster
..the doa original drive

Thanks for the tips! I've disassembled those iBooks so many times I could almost do it in my sleep. lol
