  2. Unscrew ten screws using a Phillips #000 screwdriver. Push screwdriver into screw and then turn, keeping firm pressure on the screwdriver, to avoid stripping the screw. After unscrewing a screw, place it next to the hole it was taken from. When it is time to replace the screws this will avoid any confusion, as there are several longer screws.

Заключение

To install a new hard drive into this computer, follow these instructions in reverse order. Begin by unscrewing the mounting screws from the old hard drive and screwing them into the new hard drive.

If you plan to use the current hard drive as an external hard drive, leave the mounting screws in place. Purchase a hard drive enclosure to keep the hard drive in.
