    Hey guys,
    I bought a MacBook Aluminum 2Ghz today. Earlier I heard rattling and popped open the battery cover to find the the hardrive didn't have any of the screw/brackets and was just sitting in the drive compartment. Do any of you know where I can buy some? I looked around but can't find any. Thanks for any help. I'm pretty worried now about moving it around to much.

    I dunno where u would find it but put some double sided tape on there for the meanwhile so you don't damage the drive or the machine.

    Try iFixit, they will almost certainly be able to help you out.

    iFixit has them but there out of stock. I'm currently using 2 of the screw/brackets from my PB and it's working ok till i get a real set of them.
