and ship it out without it.
As long as you specify that the machine is non-working and just for spares, you will be fine.
If the drive is functional, keep it and use it elsewhere, but if it is not functional, take it apart and destroy the shiny disk that you will find inside.
If you really want to ship it with the drive, boot the G5 from an OS X installation disk and format the disk
I have a dud G5 that will go on ebay for spares and need to remove all my emails and the account from it. I have tried reinstalling to default but it freezes so I cannot do that.
Anyone know how to delete my account?
