I was not able to organize the wires in a way to get enclosure to screw into bracket. So basically its just sitting in there, i was able to attach all the wires and everyting, i just didnt screw it back in.
I was actually able to screw in box to the bracket, but when i tried to put the computer screen back on, it was not able to flatten out so i couldnt put case back on. So i just left it unscrewed and didnt use the bracket…
Computers still working after a month or so.
I don’t remember these instructions including advice to first install MacOS onto the new SSD hard drive. If you don’t first install MacOS on the SSD before installing it, you will then need to use a different computer to create a bootable USB thumbdrive with MacOS installed on it, which is not as easy as it sounds as you have to format the USB correctly, and then download the OS which can take a while if your internet connection isnt great.
In my 21.5 “ imac, there simply isnt enough room to use the plastic ssd enclosure in photo 1 if you want to screw back into the bracket as instructions advise you to do. When trying to put the screen back onto the Imac, it just wouldnt fit. So basically i did not screw in the ssd enclosure fully with the bracket, there is still room for the ssd enclosure and for all of the connections and temperature sensor if you dont screw in the bracket.
Computer is running fine after a month or so, but i image if we end up moving the imac we should be very careful not to shakeup the SSD too much.
I also was able to proceed with rest of instructions, after skillping steps 4-10, just have to be very gentle, i think it would help to have a second set of hands to hold screen above while other hands are uninstalling and installing hard drive, but i was able to do it on my own
