Installing HD in T60 w/o caddy


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?

Re: Installing HD in T60 w/o caddy

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...



In daily use: R60F, R500F, T61, T410

Collecting dust: T60

Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,

Non-ThinkPads: Panasonic CF-31 & CF-52, HP 8760W
