Tools Needed to upgrade HD to SSD
I took the back off and was surprised to find the mounting screws or torx?? I didn't have the right tool so I had to close it back up. The Type 00 screwdriver took the back off but did't know what torx # to use to use the brackets.
Here are the tools needed to do the teardown on this machine:
- Magnetic Project Mat
- Phillips #0 Screwdriver
- Phillips #00 Screwdriver
- Tri-wing Y0 Screwdriver
- Torx #6 Screwdriver
