Introduction

Hard drive replacement (2.5") for the Dell XPS M2010 MXP061 laptop.

This computer has a primary hard drive on the left side of the system (viewed from the top) and a secondary hard drive on the right side. Since this computer has more than one hard drive, the hard drives may be in a RAID configuration. You may need to reconfigure the RAID configuration on the new hard drive(s) that you install.

The information and pictures in this guide have been taken from the service manual from this device, listed on the iFixit product page. If you need any additional information on disassembling this device, please consult the service manual.
