    I recently bought an iMac G5 1.6 that needed repair. I fixed the computer and put a new hard drive in it. However the originial hard drive in it was removed and there are no brackets. I been searching online to find the brackets but so far I've had no luck. My main concern with this is the temperature sensor. Is there anything I can do to get the sensor to register without the brackets.

    the newer intel imac repair guides show that the sensor is held on the drives with glue. dunno, maybe you could try that.

    I've read somewhere that you can move the sensor, placing it on the hard drive but I'm not sure how to do that or even if I should. And I can't find the brackets needed to plug in the sensor and hold the drive steady.

    try pieces of Styrofoam it should be able to handle the heat and it will hold the drive and the sensor
