Installing HD in T60 w/o caddy

2009-01-23, 19:21 PM

Hi,

I have a T60 and I need to install a new hard drive.  I do not have the HD caddy anymore and I was wondering if I can still properly seat the HD without it.  Also, I have a SATA hard drive replacement - will this work with my T60?

 

Thanks,
Peter

Welcome to the forum!

 

SATA is the correct drive type, but no hard drive should ever be installed in a ThinkPad without a caddy for a variety of reasons. Spend a few bucks on eBay and do it properly...

Cheers,

George
