I understand this is probably a noob question, but can somebody explain what is preventing anybody from swapping a 128GB SSD for a 256GB?

Eugene General Ed - Antwort

Eugene - nothing, I just followed this guide to upgrade from 256GB to 512GB. It's just that MBA 2012 SSDs are pretty hard to come by. I had to lurk on eBay for quite some time.

How do I get the operating system on to SSD?

You should be able to transfer the os installer into an 8+ gb thumb drive via DiskMakerX. You do need a working mac with something that works with the mac app store installed and enough space to download the os from the app store. Afterwards, just boot up your mac with the alt key, and install.

Are you certain it's a P5 pentalobe driver? We found the P5 doesn't fit, and have always used a Wiha 267IPR / 4IPR x 40
