Got a 2011 MacMini which we use for the HTPC, and yesterday its Hard Drive packed in.
Have checked online and whilst not a straight forward job, it doesnt appear impossible to replace it with a new one., ie:
However one thing "surprises me" is there is reference to a tool for removing the Logic Board ... which in all honesty just looks like a bent piece of wire.
Has anyone replaced a drive in one of these machines themselves? Any ideas on the specifics of the "tool"?
