はじめに

Appleは2台目のHDDまたはSSDドライブを搭載するためのオプションを付けてiMac 27インチモデル(mid 2010)を販売したことはありませんでした。それらを自分で組み込むためのフレームワークを提供しました。

ロジックボードのセカンダリSATAポートと、電源を利用して、とても簡単にiMacへ2台目のドライブを追加することができます。

このガイドを参照してiMac 27インチモデル (EMC 2390 mid 2010)に2台目のドライブを取り付けることができます。

  1. iMacの下部にあるアクセスドアを確認し、3本のネジを緩めます。 3本のネジはアクセスドアから脱落防止加工されています。
    • iMacの下部にあるアクセスドアを確認し、3本のネジを緩めます。

    • 3本のネジはアクセスドアから脱落防止加工されています。

    • アクセスドアを取り外します。

    • アクセスドアを再度取り付ける場合、それぞれのネジは最初からきつく締めないようにします。アクセスドアが正しくiMac本体にはまるように位置を調整しながら3本のネジを締めるようにしましょう。

    I am going to put a very important comment here. Before you start this process listen to the fans on your iMac do any of them sound obviously loud (think about how quiet your iMac used to sound as a reference) If you notice one or more of them sounding substantially loud compared to the others consider locating a replacement fan prior starting this process. After all if you are already “in the neighborhood” it is a shame to do all this work only to have to disassemble your imac a couple weeks later because you realize the fan is failing. I speak from my own personal learning experience of having to disassembly my iMac 3 weeks later because the HDD was failing and apparently the moving the fan around was just enough to push it to start really under performing.

    @Brett

    I suggest that you learn your unit symbols before you try to appear clever:

    4mb == 4 milli bits

    4MB == 4 mega bytes

    nowsc was obviously meaning 4GB not 4MB, try not to be a dick.

    Just for the records :

    4 millibits are 0,000000004 MB

    There was never any RAM in mb and the question states MB and nobody except you is talking of millibits.

    You are also a dick if you try to spread “your knowledge” nobody has asked for

    Hein Blöd -

    Take care to note which way out the RAM comes - there is a notch in each RAM and it is not centered, therefore either the notch will be on the left or to the right (depending on which way up you have your iMac). This will make it easier to replace the RAM without damaging anything.

    You can easily lift the glass panel off the magnets with only your fingernails (or something thin like a credit card or a guitar pick). No need to buy suction cups you will only use once.

    Nick Caron - 返信

    Yes, you don't need the specific suction cups to remove the display cover - it's held on by magnets, and if you start at the center by the iSight you can work out to the edges and remove it. I had an iPhone screen suction cup around and it helped with balancing the screen when you pull it out fully, but by no ways is it required.

    jtowner - 返信

    Great guide and pretty straight forward the only thing that took me ages and I didn't manage to undo were the power btn cable (step 28) and the thermal sensor (step 25) Seemed like they were glued on! Very difficult to remove and obviously conscious so I didn't break anything!

    Eddie - 返信

    Thanks!!! Worked excellently.

    I used a plunger (clean first ;-) to get the screen off, and http://exirion.net/ssdfanctrl/ for fan control.

    Then, i did not take out the whole display and left it in the hinges on the bottom side and held it up with two small cardboard boxes. Easy enough to disconnect the hdd then.

    I replaced with an ssd, put that into a ssd enclosure. Had to drill an extra hole in it to fasten the pins that hold it in place.

    Used Carbon Copy Cloner to make an image from the old hdd, with the sad connected via usb. Checked it of it booted via System Preferences > Startup Disk. It worked so the took the imac apart and replaced the disk. Booted, everything was working as always, only faster!

    Agree with the other comments here. Despite buying suction cups, not sure they were necessary as the screen removed very easily. A sat nav suction cup would do the job fine.

    Stuart Bloomfield - 返信

    I can confirm that it is possible to remove the front glass using fingernails rather than suction cups. It isn’t easy, but if you try you should be able to pry off the glass.

    I did this twice: once at the beginning of the procedure and once again at the end, when I realized that a big pice of lint was trapped under the glass.

    gordonhamachi - 返信

    Don’t use suction cups. totally unnecessary. screen pops off with fingernails.

    Kieran Hobbs - 返信

    The reason for caution about suction cups tends to be making sure you don’t apply uneven pressure on the edges of the glass and crack it in the process of removal. I do agree however that some pretty small suction cups would do fine. These suction cups can be had at your local princess auto (Harbor freight) for a few bucks and are useful elsewhere as well. if you use your fingernails or other items just try and do it evenly :)

    Abirinder Brar - 返信

    good duct tape or gaffer tape wrapped around your hands makes an excellent glass removal 'tool'. Even clear packing tape works a charm.

    Stu Blair - 返信

    A great first step that minimizes that first gust of dust migration when the glass is lifted is to clean the glass, sides *and the back* before lifting the glass, and then lift SLOWLY. Most of that dust is already trapped inside and pulled up as the screen lifts, but with care you can keep it there (or gently vacuum out with a micro vac…).

    John - 返信

    before starting any of this…there is a device that you can use that comes with the IFixit kit to format and either clone or restore your hard drive to the new drive…it will save you a lot of headaches..it is a SSD enclosure that you can plug into your existing computer …

    Tom Richter - 返信

    Thanks for the instructions. Before doing this the first time, suggest to everyone, read through at least twice. This is the easiest step, as you’ll soon see. As for removing the glass, USE suction cups, either the ones the sell here, or others. DON’T skimp. Also wear gloves when handling the glass. Don’t take chances.

    Reassembly: After powering on and running for a few minutes, found a large whitish patch on the screen. Persists after powerdown.

    Turned out to be condensation, though it didn't look like it - more like fine white powder rubbed in. Humidity is very high this time of the year. Fix: start airconditioner in a room, leave it running a while, take iMac in, prise open the glass again. Condensation vanishes instantly. Keep it out for a ~15 minutes running infinite loops to get iMac nicely heated up and fans running. Snap glass back.

    I used a Swiffer dry cloth to get all the dust off the screen while just blowing with my mouth at a steep angle. I know I didn't get every speck, but the screen looks perfect once assembled and lit again. Removing the glass from the screen is pretty easy if you need to re-clean it.

    Jay Gillibrand - 返信

    I used a microfiber cloth instead, which worked well. The same type as yo use to clean eye glasses, but in a larger form factor.

    The Swiffer idea worked great! I just brush it over the LCD and glass panel lightly, and all dust particles are gone quickly. The screen after boot up looked beautiful. Thanks!

    I strongly recomment to detach the suction cups while working at the rest of the steps. In my case after half an our i heart a crack noise behind me on the table... The vacuum of one of the suction cups braked the glass! maybe there should be a warning in the Repair guide

    shippe - 返信

    I didn't crack the screen, but it popped out of the shims and then popped back in, as if the glass edge is magnetic or has steel in it to connect to magnets. Be careful with this step — it is pretty nerve-wracking, but doable!

    Alex Reynolds - 返信

    You need a big clean surface free, or at least 2 or more free surfaces because the iMac, the glass and the LCD display are quite bulky. You'll also probably need space for a tablet or a laptop to read this guide while you are working. And don't forget room to work on the optical unit and for the tools you are going to use. I covered a large table with a double layer of bubble wrap. In my opinion it's better to put the glass face down to limit powder sticking on the internal surface.

    Roberto Blandino - 返信

    Thanks good advice! I was wondering exactly about the working space issue!

    matteoslataper -

    I am doing this repair now. After successfully lifting off the glass panel (yay!), dust blew out of the lower open edge. So I sprayed a can of air around edges. But a poof of the “air” condensated on the LCD. Does anyone know if I can clean the LCD same as how the glass is cleaned (damp cloth with equal parts white distilled vinegar/distilled water) and if not then how?

    Amy C - 返信

    Hi Amy,

    To clean the LCD panel, I would suggest using a clean microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol. Distilled water can be used, but avoid regular water, which contains minerals. Make sure the microfiber cloth is absolutely clean and has no hard particles sticking on the surface, which will scratch your LCD when you wipe it.

    Wet the surface with some alcohol and gently wipe with the microfiber cloth. Wipe in one direction.

    Arthur Shi -

    I find that the LCD is not as fragile as we all think. they are very much like any LCD on a tv or monitor. There is no extra glass on the front of a monitor. Not the 23 HP Pro Displays I have anyway. I know this because I punctured one moving my video wall. so I took it apart to know how its put together. I will say, there are several 'lens’ like sheets and a reflective (silver} sheets that are the same size as the panel. and a 1/8”piece of acrylic, all behind the LCD panel. Take care with them and clean as you would your monitor.

    My suggestion is to stand the iMac up after the panel is secured back into the body of the iMac and clean while its vertical. took me 3 attempts before I realized that while laying flat the surface is large and collects dust with mind blowing speed.

    Stu Blair - 返信

    If the LCD glass is badly cracked and broken you need to be extra careful removing as the sharp shard of broken glass can scratch/harm the underlying screen as they may “fall in or onto” the screen below.

    I found that strategically putting sheets of 8x11 paper(s) under the sharpest, largest broken sections help protect the underlying screen. A vacuum was also helpful removing some of the small glass shards.

    Mark Hilliard - 返信

    Be advised: I did a perfect replacement of the hard drive, temperature sensor to the SSD, LCD screwed in, glass cleaned. I went to put back the final glass, I set the bottom edge in place and as I slowly moved to have the magnets take hold, they pulled the screen out of my gingerly held fingers, and smacked into place……cracking the glass! Ugh! So, on this last step, hold tight as you put the glass back in slowly. It will cost you about 40-50 bucks for a new glass (mine is on it’s way).

    The display is quite heavy, an is fitted with a tight tolerance. I found it very difficult and dangerous, lifting it with any tool in one corner while the iMac was lying down. Instead, after removing the T10 screws, it was quite easy pulling the display out of the iMac with my fingers on both sides, while the iMac was in the upright position. By doing that, you can easily hold the display with one hand and reach for the connecting cables with the other

    When the cable comes out, make note of which side has the gold contacts visible. On my cable, you could only see them from the "top" side (aka, as you look down on it). From the "bottom" or back side of the cable, you could NOT see any gold contacts. This will help to orient the cable when reconnecting it.

    FYI; Cable in 27 EMC 2390 I just worked on looked different. Was simple flat connecter with nothing other than blue coloring on end. Just flat gold connectors on bottom side. These kinds are very tricky to extract and even trickier to reinsert as there is too much flex and not enough slack/room for finger/tool to get back in.

    My solution is unconventional but works. I do not remove the cables (!). I work on the floor, lying on my belly. I open slowly and carefully only as far as the cables inside will allow. Use a flashlight so you can really see clearly. Then I prop up the both sides of the display using anything the right size (box, a pair of boots…) It is crucial of course that you have things propped up securely so screen can stay a few inches up without hands! I use a very short #10 Torx so I can remove the old HD. There is barely enough room to work but it is do-able with care (and light!). As I am usually putting in an SSD these days, I simply use electrical tape to secure it. Close slowly. Test

    Perfect Idea. Even better if you use a table, quite traditional but still today useful invention: you don’t have to work lying in the floor. Makes it a lot more comfortable. To keep the screen propped up I used two wooden sticks of about 20 cm length with small feet made out of cork to make the construction more stable. I only removed the vertical Sync-cable, otherwise you cannot lift the screen that high.

    The rest was quite easy. Thanxalot.

I found this connector to be stuck so hard, that even the use of one spudger on each side of the plug pulled the connector apart and the wires came out. I wish I had known how unnecessary this part was. Now I will have to buy the customer a new one.

    When reinstalling the board, look through the access door to check that the RAM slots are properly lined up with the grooves in the case. Sometimes the board looks like it is properly installed from the front, but if you look from below you can see that it is misaligned,.

    I was going to just do a replacement but my kit didn’t have a new temperature sensor for the SSD. Instead, I tried the dual drive install only to find out that the “spare” SATA data socket was already being used by the existing HD. Had to punt and leave the existing drive connected to power so the thermal sensor would work and put in the new SSD under the optical drive as instructed. A lot of wasted steps, but a learning process.

    I succeeded with this guide and an upgrade kit from ifixit, however the sata cable was VERY VERY short and almost too short (way shorter then in the guide's pictures). a couple of extra centimeters would have made the process much easier.

    besides that, thanks for the detailed guide. took me about 2 hours until the mac was booting from the ssd successfully.

    After haveing completed the installation of the dual Hard Drive, I have to say that routing the SATA cable was the most difficult part of the whole procedure. The SATA cable is quite short, there is little space in the cable slot, which makes the power cable already there to leave its position. The Airport Cable is always in the way. Finally, I had to cut a piece in the cutaway in the plastic frame near the optical drive, just below the GPU heat sink, so that the SATA Cable fits. Perhaps a slightly longer cable would be more helpful.

    Georg P - 返信

    SATA cable is very short, 3-5 cm more will be enough.

    bieniekmichal - 返信

    I had the kit as well and also had a spare sata data cable that terminating with a L connector and was about 2” longer. Made routing the cable substantially easier.

    Better placement: between original HDD and optical drive, below GPU heat pipes. this will leave the air flow from the ODD fan to the GPU heat sink intact. WIll only work with 1.8" SSD's.

    30cm SATA cable will do.

    jes ta - 返信

    I agree, I put the ssd where ifixit suggested but owc suggested under the graphics heatsink'so pipes. I think my ssd is now blocking airflow, we'll see how long it lasts and I hope my sata cable doesn't melt!

    Jeff 3F - 返信

    Just replaced the ODD as suggested by iFixit.

    I suggest to follow this guide because, in my honest opinion, the air flow is not blocked by the SSD (which is by far thinner than the ODD). Moreover the space below the GPU heat pipes is very tight and it requires some more tweaks to properly set the SSD with the sticky tapes.

    Claudio Fantacci - 返信

    I am also going to add a SSD under the superdrive. A data cable has been plugged in the secondary onboard SAT A (27" mid2010) since I had to remove the mainboard and everything else to remove the dust from my iMac and check the PSU and backlight (noisy backlight) due to a non working iMac (no diag led switched on on the mainboard.).

    I have ordered a PSU but finally found out that mine was working and it was mainly due to a bad grounding of the PSU... No more backlight noise since then...

    Anyway, thank you for your tutorials. The 27" iMac mid 2010 is quite simple to take part (more than a standard laptop).

Adding a SSD drive for the system was a simple process and has completely transformed my old i3 iMac - definitely worth the money and effort

<i>Apple never sold the 2010 27" iMac with the option of having a second hard drive,</i>

This isn't true. Mine has a 256GB Apple-installed second drive.

Great guide. I followed it but found after removing the logic board there was no secondary sata port!!! Either way I hooked up the original hard drive to power and temp sensor to stop the fan spin up and used the sata for the SSD so works great. One problem! My sound is now greyed out? Any physical reason for this? When the imac powers on it makes a sound but no sounds in Mac OS. I feel it must be physical not software related.

Damian Wright - 返信

I had a 15cm SATA cable, which is too short to reach an SSD under the Optical Drive. I ended up putting the SSD right on top of the hard drive (then 15cm is just enough).

oluc - 返信

Great guide. I installed an SSD behind the optical drive, plugged it into the primary SATA port and used a different cable to plug the 3.5" HDD to the secondary SATA port. Now for some reason my iMac can see the SSD but the HDD is invisible, as if it wasn't connected. I checked all cabling and it is most definitely connected to the motherboard. Any suggestions?

bkfwas - 返信

Check to make sure your iMac has the ports on the motherboard for this expansion. Not every iMac has them. For additional consideration, large solid-state capacity hard drives are available now; it's easier to simply replace your existing hard drive with a terabyte solid-state.

Oh and, make every possible effort to avoid fingerprints on the inside of your glass or the front of the LCD.

I removed the OLD ODD/DVD Drive and put an Laptop HDD 1gb from an old MacBook that met with a tragic death. It jumped off our 4th floor balcony. The HDD survived, but not any other part. But that 750GB Laptop Drive was put in the place of the ODD with a ODD to HDD conversion part. (I figured that the last time I had put a disk in the ODD had been over a year ago) the other 2 SATA ports were occupied by 2 SSD’s each 240GB So I Could have VM’s on one HDD and segmented from the primary OS and the Media (documents, Pictures, videos on the HDD) The first time I booted it I though for sure I had some failure. Rather than the normal crawl across the screen of the progress bar it zipped across in under 3 seconds. One of the best upgrades I could ever do. (besides replacing fans that are starting to be loud (their warning they are starting to fail)

Wizbang FL - 返信

If I do it like this and leave the old hard drive in even if my old hard drive is on the verge of death, will my iMac still rely on the new SSD and work fine?

Jacob Robinson - 返信

>Jacob Robinson, I am about to attempt this upgrade and this is what i found out.. You will need to use software such as Carbon Copy Cloner to copy your entire HDD (including Operating System) onto the new SSD. Then (using Disk Utility) set the new SSD as your boot drive. You can use your old HDD as storage for non essential data. Always make sure you back up. Make sure you switch on TRIM for the new SSD before cloning. Google is your friend. :)

Alun Harrison - 返信

@jacob_robinson I’m about to attempt this upgrade myself. What I have learnt online so far; Once installed, format the SSD using Disk Utility. Switch on TRIM for your new SSD to ensure data is written to it correctly. Use software such as Carbon Copy Cloner to clone your entire old HDD (including operating system) to the new SSD. Use Disk utility to make the new SSD your boot drive. Now you can use the old HDD for non essential files. Make sure you back up first and (if you don’t also replace the HDD while you have the case open) back up regularly to prevent data loss. Good luck!

Great guide, just completed adding an 1T SSD. I have taken the opportunity to clean both heatsinks (oh boy were they filthy) and clean install macOS High Sierra. Btw this tip (https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-7...) show how to unmount the old drive volume at boot. Now I have a quiet and fast PC (quite an experience). Too bad macOS Mojave will not support this trusty old friend…

After having reassembled everything, at power on, the fans were running at maximum speed.

To return to a normal situation, it was necessary to reset the SMC.

To do this, disconnect the power cable for 15 seconds.

Reconnect the power cable, wait 5 seconds and press the start button. The Mac restarts normally.
