Introduction
If you wish to replace a failed hard drive or upgrade it to a larger drive or SSD, this guide will show you how to change the drive on the system.
'''Guide notes'''
* This guide does not cover OS installation or backups. This is something you will need to figure out how to do.
* If your system has a HDP on it, it may carry to your new hard drive. I recommend testing it with a junk drive first (if available), just to be sure.
* You will need to figure out how to get install media for your particular system. If you wish to reinstall Windows, you can use the black Dell DVD or your custom media, if you made this when you purchased the system. If you have neither available, Dell will send you one set of media for your system, if it has not been previously requested. If this is the case, you can find these DVD's online very easily.
* If you break the hard drive cover, the part required has the following DP/N: TYR75

Parts

  • 7mm hard drive bumpers x1 DP/N: TYR75 added.
