    Adding Internal HD To G5 PPC
    Hello All,

    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.

    Specs:
    MacMini 4.1, OS 10.11 and 10.6; Macbook Pro 8.2, OS 10.11, MacBook 4.1, OS 10.6.8
    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!
