    I would suggest that if are just selling for parts , why not just pull the hdd out of it ? I mean if its just a parter then...no one should really want to trust a used drive anyway....

    Just my thoughts

    well it still runs, the only issue is the cdr drive now working. but removal of the hd would be a last resort.

    Ok I wouldn't call that selling for parts then....
    If you have another Mac connect to it in target mode and wipe it that way.
