As the previous comment stated (but only for step 7), ALL the connection apparatus have a white "flip" side (for STEP 7, 9, 17 and 19). Instead of struggling (like I did first), simply lift up the white side with your nail and gently remove the ribbons. Also, it is not necessary to entirely remove the battery (STEP 13) to carefully disconnect the cables. Thanks for for the tutorial though!

Hey! I have the T100TA. Super happy with it, but it's a bit older and only has 1gb of RAM. Is it possible to put the board of the T100(which has 2gb of RAM) into it? I assume size is the same, but are the connections? Thanks!

I have “downgraded” my T100TAM by installing a motherboard from the T100 (because I couldn’t find a T100TAM motherboard). So the other way around should also be possible.

Inspector Norse -

I replaced the motherboard. Did everthing right. But it didn't turned on.

Is there any way to start up the motherboard first time?

Where is the hard drive located on these? Is it on the board and can it be swapped out? I have data on one which is locked and the device won’t boot to anything at all so stuck!
