    Well we should start with knowing what iMac you have exactly. And it should also be known your level of doing self-upgrades. Because some iMac HDD replacements are not for the feint of heart (i.e. it's really hard!).

    Why not just get an external?

    Guide: depends on the iMac, as there are at least four different outer design variants. Do a search of this forum or this.
    Software: SuperDuper and Carbon Copy Cloner
