I wanted to test out my new driver kit, so I reached for the closest thing with screws in it. It just happened to be an old western digital hard drive.
It went well. Some of the screws were in there pretty tight. But the driver kit got it done.
If you plan to open a hard drive, make sure it's one you don't need anymore. It may not work after you're done. Mine was already dead so I just went for it. For science.
I needed more memory and my disk drive was already busted plus i don't use it anyway so its just easier to throw a Wd blue 1 TB 2.5 drive in its place.
The drive swap went great installing windows 8.1 for dual booting (with el captain) went well but the High Definition audio controller fails to start and no sound devices are recognized as installed, tried all solutions to no avail, only thing that works is usb headphones.
Might be a great time to clean out your fan!
