5 - 30 Minuten
Thanks to your tools and to your guide, everything went smooth and my new Seagate 750 GB HDD was installed in less than 20 minutes.
So easy I strongly recommand it to anybody needing more space.
My trouble started after I closed the computer enclosure: my MacBook Pro 17" said it could not use my new HDD —though it identified it perfectly. After searching and searching I decided that the only solution was to create a partition on it. It works perfectly and I could then copy on the new drive the clone of the previous HDD I had made before the repair (thanks to CCC).
Later, I had a bad surprise when MS Office asked for the product key and I could not open the Word doc where I kept it. Fortunately I found the DVD. So beware… Maybe you should add to your guides the way to use the new drives after their installation.
Since then everything is working perfectly fine and I am very happy to have chosen iFixit services.
