Needed more space for Win 7 on my Mid 2009 MB Pro 13"
1 - 2 horas
The 750GB drive wasn't big enough for OS X and Win 7 so something had to go, and it was the optical drive. OS X space taken up by data from forensics cases I've been working on and needed more Win 7 space for board design software and FPGA design software as well as forensic tools. Second drive now 500GB WD Scorpio Black. Should be plenty of room now!
The only "hitch" really was step 5 and "sliding" small clear plastic cable retainer which is clued to logic board. The picture wasn't clear enough for me. Should have taken another one for the next person. I really ended up carefully prying it off, and then putting it back at the end. Found one "missing" screw magnetically attached to the sub-woofer. All good.
Just be careful and follow the directions. LOVE the folks at ifixit.
