This plastic cover wasn’t included with the new battery so I placed the original one back in. Was it supposed to go back in? This detail wasn’t clear since the original cover didn’t fit exactly over the newer battery connector. Plus any stickiness of adhesive that may have been there was gone.

I lost this screw! How important is it? Will it be okay with just the 3 previously removed screws?

WHy to remove battery contact board? Replace can happen without it also, right.

when reinstalling the interposer - pay close attention to proper orientation. You can install it upside down and still make it fit - don't ask me how I know!

I followed the guide and was able to upgrade my wife's MacBook from 128GB to 240 GB!

One thing I noticed was that when I removed the plastic clip in step 6, it left behind a glue dot on the screw head I had to remove in step 7. I wasn't sure why my screwdriver kept rotating until I realized the clear dot was covering the screwed! Then I tweeze the dot off, and put it in the recess on the underside of the clip and all was good.

Everything went to the letter after, until it came time to restart and initialize the new disk. It turns out the old disk had some directory damage, so when it was copied to the new internal SSD, then the Mac wouldn't boot from it until I did a couple FSCK and Repair Disk fixes.

Sam,

The 2012 MacBook Pro uses an PCI Express Mini Card connection between the logic board and the SSD.

"Some notebooks (notably the Asus Eee PC, the MacBook Air, and the Dell mini9 and mini10) use a variant of the PCI Express Mini Card as an SSD. This variant uses the reserved and several non-reserved pins to implement SATA and IDE interface passthrough, keeping only USB, ground lines, and sometimes the core PCIe 1x bus intact.[11] This makes the 'miniPCIe' flash and solid state drives sold for netbooks largely incompatible with true PCI Express Mini implementations."
