Don't have right torx. OK to remove HD with battery in place?
Got a rush job here; dead MacBook Pro, need to remove HD to recover data for use in another machine. Don't have the special 5 point Torx to remove the battery. Is it possible to remove the HD without taking the battery out first, or is that a Really Bad Idea? Thanks for quick knowledgeable replies!
I know ifixit recommends 1.5mm flat, will scour my small town for one tomorrow. Found an official correct tool but it's on order, won't arrive soon enough. Available at http://www.pbparts.com/shop.php/9229101
Is this a good question?
