    I'm hoping to upgrade the HD in my new iMac to a better one, does anyone have the service manual for it?
    Also what is the name of the screwdriver that opens the special 6-pin screws in the bottom?
    Any help would be great!

    I've not seen a service manual. The screws will be Torx of some size.

    The iMac G5-Aug 2004's file name might be imacg5_20.pdf/imacg5_17.pf
    ALS models-not sure
    iSight-uses a putty knife like tool, acccording to Macintouch.com

    To get the official Apple service manuals:
    -you need to have a GSX account with Apple (i.e. you need to be a AASP)
    -go to gsx.apple.com
    -log on there with your Apple ID and then, GSX account number.


    Notes:
    -To access the hard drive, the display bezel is removed first, and then the film covering the insides of the iMac.
