Simple like that...
That has got to take the record for the most useful first post by a new member in the history of MacRumors. Thank you and well done.
Agreed, my first post was about using the iBook while in clamshell mode. How i have learnt alot since that day.
I have no idea what my first post was. Probably something pretty lame though.
Martusemax, how long did it take you to remove?
... actually, i don't have a iMac G5 YET.
My sister is coming tomorrow from UK with a brand new one to me. Then, she ask me how to carry it without the stand.
I looked for a solution and Google sent me to MacRumors. As i saw lots of posts here trying to solve this answer (with no success) i went to Apple's page and find it in Downloads section.
One thing i know is that you will need that kind of "star" allen tool to remove the screws.
Um yeah this would be useful if it wasn't for the fact the VESA instructions were for a ACD not an iMac g5
I hate to say, but i think you're right. If it was so simple, we would not have so much posts about it. Sorry about it (if i'm REALLY wrong).
Anyway, i hope my G5 arrives here unbroken.
GREAT job bashing a BRAND NEW member.
way to go!
AWESOME! So your getting a G5 iMac, eh?
Sweetness! 17" or 20"... give us some specs please!
Hey we are not all perfect just pointing out the fact it wasn't a iMac but a ACD how is that bashing?
Welcome to the real world.
Errr, i'm lost here: i'm brazilian and my english isn't "that good", so someone can explain to me what is "bashing", because i didn't find it at BabelFish or another decent translate website.
MartuseMax, trying to get to the 500 messages and post an Avatar.
The word is "bashing", not "banshing".
its so lame when people try to get out of something they KNOW they did. Here let me point it out to you since the post is still there. Note that right off the bat you use a condensending and deameaning tone. Now be an honest person and tell us again if you think you were being mean.
you could of just pointed out that it was a mistake.
honestly not trying to be mean
stuff on the internet is read by the person so maybe you just had a bad morning or evening (No intent here for bashing or insulting just plain fact)
so you deny that starting a statement with "Um" isnt deameaning? you might not of meant it, but it was. no big deal. i do stuff like that all the time. I guess its called learning.
Hope your G5 arrives fine. Welcome to Macrumors.
I agree that Mikeyredk's thing did come off as little rude, but internet interpretations are different to what they are in real life and contantly accusing him of bashing a new member is a little childish, isn't it?
I say "arr" or "uhh" or "umm" when I am correcting something but not 100% sure of my correction, which isn't intended as bashing.
I don't know what my first post was either, but in my oldest post I can find, I was reprimanded by Vlade for spamming
Edit: This was my first post, and this was yours.
Did you have to...
How did you find that? Do you have to use special Mod Powers?
well. I got a bit of "attitude" I THINK for posting something to help "newbie" !!
I hope you don't get turned off from what has happened in this thread and continue to participate in this forum
No way to get out, i'll keep coming here!
And just you all to know, my iMac arrived well and it's working fine. My sister brought it without it's back (!) in a big hand bag. She placed the back with the stands in her clothes luggage, and now everything is okay.
At this moment i'm transfering the files from my "old" iMac to the new one via firewire.
Thanks for all comments, and sorry about the mistake. But promess: i'll find out how to remove the stand and post it soon.
I believe to take of the stand you have to take of the back of the machine first. Once the back is off I think there is a screw or mechanism of some type that you should be able to remove. From there you could put on the VESA mount on the back cover and then replace the cover. I could have swore I've seen a post around here that talked about it. I'll look for it and let you know if I can find anything. If I can't find anything maybe I'll just try to do it on mine. Good Luck.
Why would you want to remove the stand from your iMac??
What am I missing here??
