Logic board removal for Mac Mini 2011 hard drive replacement.

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Got a Samsung 470 and it's connected (albeit shoddily) to my Mac Mini. Do I have to remove the logic board out partially as the OWC video says to secure it. Just wanted to hear from those who have done it.

    In this video, it shows it's possible to do the replacement without removing the logic board:


    Easier to take out than put in but if the drive goes in the top slot, the antenna plate screws into the drive so it holds it firmly in place.

    I hadn't seen that video while searching so thanks I will try it again tonight. I learned something new.

    Thanks much.
