Thank you! I was worried about the step to remove the accessory plate, but seeing this tutorial helped reassure me that I wasn't going to break it. Very interesting design choice by HP...

What’s the hard disk size in case I want to buy a replacement? In terms of inches. I see online that most of the laptop hard disks are quoted as 2.5 or 3 inch

2.5 inches. I fitted the Samsung 850 EVO, fits perfectly.

Thanks found the guide helpful. However I caused myself a problem by breaking the black hdd retaining clip on the motherboard. It was so fragile that I’m sure this has happened to others???? Any repair ideas anyone? As you imagine I’d be grateful of a resolution.
