    These are JIS screws. A J1 bit will fit better than a PH1 bit.

    To reinstall drive, hold the internal frame upside down. This will make it easier to align the connector.

    It was super frustrating getting the drive aligned, and when It finally did align, I forgot about the temperature sensor and managed to yank the wire out of the board. Hopefully I can adjust the fans manually and not have to reattach the wire, which doesn't really appear possible.

    Anyone ever do it?

    I wonder if the wire was the cause of my issue from the beginning, as now that the wire is gone, the drive slips right into place. So, if you're having difficulty getting the drive connected, make sure the temp sensor wire is out of the way.

    So, looking back, I now see that the sensor cable routs on top of the drive, not underneath.

    When putting a new drive in you need the spudger to hold the bottom of the drive in place though the side opening while you slide it into the sata connectors with your hand or a dull side of a screw driver. It wont damage anything [edit] (the spudger through the side hole) although it seems like you're forcing it. I did it twice because of the same problem with the wire getting caught. Rather than pull on the wire I just removed the drive and realigned the sensor. It's easy with the spudger.

    It's really not that hard getting the new drive in and avoiding the wire. Move the wire out of the way! Drop the drive in, at an angle under the screw holes adjacent to the fan. Slide along the bottom until it touches the end where the connector is. Turn upside down and push in.

Conclusión

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

For all those poor people who have wrecked their Minis by following the bad advice on this page, I fixed mine by replacing this part:

http://www.powerbookmedic.com/Mac-Mini-I... (Apple part no 922-8807).

I did manage to solder a connector back onto the visible contacts on my original board, but it didn't work; the replacement worked fine.

If your cable is damaged too, you'll need to replace that too, but note that there are several different ones, and SKU17434 (Apple part 922-7319) is NOT compatible with the above board. I don't know the exact model of cable - having received the wrong one I managed to repair my original one.
