So basically Im trying to save this 2.16Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo G5 A1207 iMac I found for sale for £10. ($15USD) it had no internal HDD (presumably removed for security reasons) and the PSU was blown. Replaced the PSU for a cheap used unit and now the machine turns on at least I *was* looking to replace the internal HDD, but on inspection the SATA data connector on the logic board has been damaged by some heavy handed oaf. (one of the pins snapped off) I have a usb 240GB SSD drive that i would like to run the machine on. is this possible? Can someone point me to a tutorial of how i go about getting OS X onto the external HDD and booting from it. Is this even possible with No internal HDD? I have a macbook pro, i was hoping to make some sort of USB recovery partition using that? Any help greatly appreciated.
