    I'm about to replace the HDD with an SSD in my late 2009 Imac.
    I've got all the tools, and have studied the tutorials (it's my first time opening an Imac up)..

    ...but have yet to find clear instructions on to how to disable/short the HDD sensor.

    I've googled, and googled but to no avail. I've found general comment on this but what I would like is a short instruction set finished off with an illustration/photo.

    Does anyone know of such a resource?

    regards, Guy

    Cut and twist the sensor wire then tape it and you are done.
