    I started a project, a Hackintosh in a Mac Pro 1.1 case.
    My biggest problem ist, I am not able to remove the Top Shelf. I have removed every screw but nothing happened. I found some tutorials for a G5 case but all the pictures were offline and just the text was not very helpful :roll2:
    And it seems the G5 and my Mac Pro are not similar.

    Can someone help me please?

    Did you try to remove the nuts for the side cover locks? On a G5 you need to remove those to remove the top shelf.

    Does the top shelf come out a certain way? I've removed all the screws and these bolts and it still wont budge. Did you disassemble the door lock mechanism?
