Guys, help me out please. My Mom's HDD on a late-2006 iMac 24" broke recently and she had her birthday yesterday so I promised her to fix it for her. I know it uses a SATA2 3,5" HDD and SATA connectors are all backwards compatible. But would it accept an SSD, let's say a Crucial M500 mSATA 240GB (which I would take from my current PC)? I am worried mostly about whether it will recognize it only as a temporary storage device or get some Apple "Non-Mac-Hardware-block". I would install either MacOS (I think Lion was the latest supported one for that model) again or Linux, I dont care. I remember when I installed my first SSD on a Windows PC like 6 years ago you had to switch some things in the BIOS so it would be recognized as a permanent storage device that one can install an OS onto. And this one is firstly a MAC and secondly from 2006. If I need to buy an adapter for the Drive separetely, do you know which one?
