MacBook Pro Hard Drive Upgrade
Photopsy of the process of upgrading the hard drive in my MacBook Pro (17" CoreDuo) from 100GB to 200GB (Seagate Momentus 7200.2 200GB - ST9200420AS).

Notes to self: Write this up as an Instructable.

Notes:

- Imaged old drive to new drive using SuperDuper! via eSATA interface. See this LifeHacker article.

- Followed MacBook Pro Disassembly: Installing Hard Drive instructions for accessing HD from iFixIt. Minor variations in screw counts for my 17" compared to their 15".

Update: My rough draft of "how to DIY" is up at clothbot.com/wiki/UpgradeMacBookProHardDrive A final version should be showing up in the Mac Hacks book when it comes out.
