Hi,

On page 43 of the service manual, you can see the steps to replace the drive. They are two ZIF connectors. One is for audio board and one for the hard drive. You need to flip up the tab on the connector and then lift out the cable. You can use a fingernail or a plastic card to flip up the TAB.
