Step Lines

[* black] Disconnect the hard drive cable from the hard drive by applying even pressure on both sides while maintaining a firm grip on the drive itself.
[* icon_note] This is a bit tricky. Try holding the drive against your body while pushing the cable away from you, or rocking the cable gently from side to side while applying even pressure, or both. If you bend the pins, do your best to straighten them, using the hard drive cable as a guide.
[* icon_reminder] With the label up and the pins facing away from you, the bracket that has a longer short section goes on the left side.
[* icon_note] If you are installing a new hard drive, we have an [guide|751|OS X install guide] to get you up and running.
