Moderate

Mi Problema

Previous hard disk was failing after 4 years of heavy use

Mi Solucion

The instructions were great and super clear. It was easy to disassemble everything. One thing that was not so good was that the ribbon connector for the keyboard (held down by orange tape) was difficult to remove. The tape actually pealed some of the connector off.

When I put the new drive in, and booted from the DVD, I started getting kernel panics (the descending grey shade of death). At this point, I plan to remove the (new) HDD and see if I can bring it up at all. If you have advice, please feel free to comment.

Mi Consejo

Be careful removing the keyboard connector to the motherboard. The orange tape in mine was old, and very sticky, and tore the cover on that connector.
