    • Disconnect the hard drive cable from the hard drive using a spudger by gently loosening one side at a time. (Be careful not to pry to hard or you may bend the pins.) You may need to remove a piece of orange tape attaching the ribbon cable to the hard drive.

    • This is a bit tricky. If you bend the pins, do your best to straighten them using the hard drive cable as a guide.

    • If you are installing a new hard drive, we have an OS X install guide to get you up and running.

Easy enough to follow. The clips at the front of the drive bay are rather delicate and tricky to re-install properly. The spudger helped with that too.

I have a 15 inch powerbook g4 with 1,67ghz and I after installing 160gb ATA drive I only had 149,69 gb left before installing os and stuff. My question is: Does powerbooks have any hardware limitations that makes us unable to install more storage?

If you try to install an SSD via SATA-IDE-adaptor, please make sure it works before re-assembling the PowerBook - this saves you a lot of time. I did this four times in a row, just to see that it didn’t work out well. May be it’s the quality of the SSD, or of the adaptor. But note two things: use the “flat” version of the adaptor; and if Leopard’s disk-utility outputs and “Input/Output-Error”, try Tiger’s disk-utility for the first initializion of the SSD. Btw. the manual here is great! Thank you!
