How to disconnect the HD?
the original HD of my iBook is broken and now the boot is from an external firewire HD. Fine, but lately a loud noise comes from the iBook, changing on the tilt of the notebook; I've already replaced the fan but the noise is yet there, thus I suppose it comes from the fault internal HD.
May I just disconnect the HD without any problem on the behaviour of the iBook?
In order to do that, can I disconnect the orange HD cable on step 37 of the guide:
skipping all the difficult steps between 24 and 36?
