How to remove logic board?

In the teardown it just show someone putting two screwdrivers into the blind holes and the comment that this saves the Apple-special-tool ("logic board removal tool", probably just a joke).

When I insert a screwdriver or whatever into these blind holes, I can touch the ground of the case on the other side, but I don't feel they can move anything.

How should this work exactly?

May I ask why do you need to remove the logic board O_o

And I agree, that part of the guide is very... confusing

Good point, @gabe, presumably to upgrade the HDD

that is used as a way to push the logic board out the back. all you do is

1. make sure the back of the mac mini if facing you.

2. make 100% sure that you have got all the screws ( the tear down missed some screws).

3. make 100% sure that you have disconnected everything (i broke the clip to my IR sensor by not paying attention)

4. put two screw drivers in the holes and pull towards you

So the holes are actually not needed? I could just move the logic board somewhere else also? This didn't work for me.

I successfully used a small 2mm Allen key to detach the logic board. You shouldn't use anything tightly fitting, since, from what I understand, it's a levering action: fixed point is at the bottom of the case while the two holes in the logic board move to the back (connectors side). You can even get away with a single key/screw driver, if you alternate carefully.
