Thanks for the info, but as apple shop considers my computer as "Vintage" they do not wish to repair or extract the hard disk, so i am left to figure this out on my own through the apple community.
So here i am wondering if someone has any insight how to extract the hard disk?
The iMac just refuses to boot-up at this point!
Most older iMacs are not very difficult to open if you are careful, take your time, have the right tools, & a good guide like those available from web sites like iFixIt. If you are not concerned about reviving a dead one & just want to pull the hard drive, you are not risking much by trying it yourself.
However, before you try opening it you might want to see if it will start up in Target Disk Mode. If so, you should be able to transfer its HD's contents to another Mac without ever opening the case.
