    • Don't forget to transfer this to your new hard drive.

    This step and the next don’t align. The HDD pictured in step 15 does not come in a tray or enclosure it’s a solid lump of plastic and metal.

Yes, but how do I open the case to get to the drive? Where do the suction cups come in? What is the EMI foam for?

This guide is missing several steps.

Hi! You have somehow stumbled upon a prerequisite guide that is improperly labeled. This guide is supposed to be used in part with a larger guide.

You can find the complete guide here. Sorry about the confusion!
