Thread: Adding Internal HD To G5 PPC
12-16-2009, 08:38 PM #1Adding Internal HD To G5 PPC
I'm wanting to add some storage to this machine,
Machine Name: Power Mac G5
Machine Model: PowerMac7,2
CPU Type: PowerPC 970 (2.2)
Number Of CPUs: 2
CPU Speed: 1.8 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
Memory: 5 GB
Bus Speed: 900 MHz
Boot ROM Version: 5.1.5f0
I went to OWC and the online selector there says this one will work, however, from what I have read I will need a Serial-ATA drive and not a SATA drive.
Could anyone set me straight on this.
Thanks for any information.

Serial-ATA = SATA.
Your G5 is amongst the first of the G5 line produced - M9393LL/A (dual 1.8 GHz) [source: Mactracker]. It does indeed have an SATA hard drive, and any additional drives, of which you can add two, should also be SATA.
Hitachi make good drives, good choice. Have fun!
