Step 3: Install Your New Drive

How to Upgrade Your Netbook's Hard Drive or SSD

Steps:  

The drive on a few netbooks—the HP Mini 1000 and Dell Inspiron Mini 12, for example—is under the keyboard. But most drives can be found beneath an upgrade panel on the bottom of the chassis. For the latter, follow these steps to install a new SSD.

  1. Flip the system over and locate the upgrade panel on the bottom of the chassis.
  2. Unscrew and remove the panel.

  3. Remove the screws holding the original SSD in place; the chip should pop up.

  4. Gently pull the original SSD out of the slot.
  5. Take the new SSD and insert it into the slot. Make sure the connectors on the chip line up with the grooves in the slot.
  6. Screw the SSD chip into place.
  7. Replace the panel and screw it back in.
  8. Boot off your rescue disk (with your external hard drive attached) and use Macrium Reflect to restore the disk image to your new SSD.

  9. Once the image is restored, you should be able to boot your netbook and enjoy the additional capacity and speed of your new drive.
