Default Hard Drive Replacement For Mini 12 - 07-13-2010, 10:53 PM

Hi everyone, I have been blue screened to death over the last week. Finally my Mini 12 has reached hard drive failure. I have no idea how to put a new one in, but will hire someone to do it for me. If possible, can you post a link to the correct one(s) to buy. I've been looking for 2 days and am very, very confused. Thank you!

Hi, Welcome to the forum,

Check out the big Runcore ad above by our sponsors, they offer Dell Mini 12 SSDs (which will be faster than your last Hard drive and offer better battery life) they range from 16GB - 128GB. There are others cheaper ones available if you want a normal hard drive., what you essentially need is a 1.8inch PATA Zif Drive

Replacing the hard drive will involve opening up your Mini. I know for a fact the Runcore drives come with the correct sized screw driver which is handy. The Dell Mini 12 service manual is here:Documentation which shows you step-by-step how to carry out the procedure.

Hope this helps.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
