    Hi, apologies if this request has been raised before but can anybody help me with obtaining a copy of the ASD Apple Service Diagnostic # release 2.6.3 so I can carry out a fan/thermal calibration on my late G5 Quad?
    Any assistance much appreciated, thanks Tom

    Distribution of ASD discs is not allowed because it was never publicly released.

    Yes thanks for that Intell, however I was rather hoping some kind soul might be able to direct me to a possible source as my local Apple Service Centre can't help due to the age of the G5 Quad (late 2005).

    Posting of such sources is against the rules of MacRumors as doing so falls under piracy.

    I think he means a repair shop or AASP that can perform the service.

    Thanks all.
    Intell I appreciate you pointing out the forum rules, most helpful.
    I was rather hoping that someone might know of an official source which might be able to assist.

    Someone needs help fixing up their G5 to get it in fully working shape. No one is coming after you for sharing diagnostics tools created a decade ago especially if it's freely available to download off the net with a quick google search... Besides, these machines are considered vintage and no one will service them for free, even a "checkup" diagnostic to find a fault would cost more than it's worth.

    It's pretty much abandonware.

    Tomyg, hopefully you found the link to it with a search here and perhaps on Google.

    ASD # release 2.6.3

    I gather you managed to obtain a copy of this. Could you possibly let me know where I can obtain one please.
