    • 使用撬棒将音频输出带状电缆连接器板从硬盘驱动器支架上撬出。

    I skipped the step (6c) of prying the audio out ribbon cable connector board off the hard drive bracket (& disconnecting it), since it doesn't come off real easily, and I didn't want to damage it. It only requires a little more care when removing the HD from it's bracket if you skip step 6c.

    Reversing step 8 is where I ran into trouble. The replacement fan I had was slightly thicker than the original and caused the ZIF cable to work its way out of the tenuous connection it had to the SSD, resulting in a "?" missing boot drive error upon startup. Took me three tries to get it right! The difficulty is to get the drive connector to the logic board to reach and seat without pulling the other end out of the drive.

    • 两个不同版本的MacBook Air 有着不同的连接头。 操作失误可能让机器损坏您的硬盘! 断开连接时请务必小心。 ZIF连接器是脆弱的。

    • 如果您的型号为A1304,使用撬棒或者大拇指来将固定滑杆朝着远离线缆的方向滑动。(参考第二张图片)

    Hi, I've a A1304 hardware configuration (24-pin cable) and recently I've bought an SSD which uses an A1237 hard drive connector's (40-pin cable). If I buy this diferent cable can I use it without major problems?


    Edgar Castro - 回复

    A1237(original and 2008) uses 40-pin ZIF cable, and internally E-IDE signal.

    A1304(2009) uses 24-pin LIF cable, and internally S-ATA signal.

    It’s not only different cable, but also different disk drive. If you bought one, you physically cannot uses on otherwise.

    Sorry to resurrect ancient question, but this might be helpful if someone trying in the furute.

    • 如果您安装了新的硬盘,请参考安装Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard指南。

    • 如果需要,将泡沫从当前的硬盘驱动器转移到新的硬盘上。 泡沫通过使用撬棒和一些耐心来卸掉。

    • 2个可选项来让 MacBook Air读取CD和DVD就是购买外置SuperDrive或者使用苹果Remote Disc。 Remote Disc通过附近带有光驱的Mac远程借用其光驱来让MacBook Air实现光驱功能。

It is not necessary to remove the battery. The hard drive can easily be reached while the battery is in place, although you have a little bit more space if you do remove the battery.

It probably is a good idea to unplug the battery before replacing the hard drive, so you do not accidentally short-circuit anything.

Remco Dijkman - 回复

My hard drive replacement (a Mach Xtreme Nano PATA ZIF 120GB SSD) actually went in the other way up from the stock Apple Drive. ie The ZIF connector is seen when put back together, rather than under the drive as is the case with the Apple Drive (as seen in Steps 10&11). This also meant the cable came up past the drive on the inside of the bracket then to the mother board. I had tried several times the same way as the Apple drive was, and the cable kept being pulled out of the ZIF connector when putting it back together. Luckily this did not damage my drive.

Charlie - 回复

I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your comment. I bought exactly the same SSD and spent the better part of today trying to get the computer to see it in Disk Utility. I tried everything (at least I thought so!), tweaking the ZIF cable, resetting the rubber bumper, and so on. Must have done ten or more restarts to no avail. The only thing I didn't do was turn the drive upside down! Thank you so much!

SERIOUSLY. 2 hours trying to figure out WHY it wouldn't work, THANK YOU CHARLIE. YEARS LATER.

This guide was very helpful and accurate for our A1304 Air, I have commented/adjusted the guide to give some extra info which I felt was missing, useful for identifying the correct model/revision and related replacement part.

I fitted a RunCore 128GB SSD to our A1304 (Revision B) Air, it was easy enough and works exactly as we hoped! The A1304 (Revision B) model Air has a LIF connector. RunCore have different SSD products for the different Air revisions, it would be easy to order the wrong part, so be sure you you what modle/revision of Air you're working on!

Read the guide in full for, for all the details.

HELP! I replaced my Original Macbook Air hard drive with a Samsung 1.8" 120 G PATA HS12YHA hard drive. Now my Mac gives me the flashing folder with the "?" and Disk Utility doesn't recognize the new drive. Any suggestions??

Deborah - 回复

I installed the new hard drive. Your instructions were very accurate. However, when I turn the machine on, I see a blinking folder image with a question mark in the middle. I am assuming since the hard drive is completely blank, there is no "boot" routine. However, since this is an Air, there is no internal disc drive so I don't know how to run the original install discs. Any thoughts?

There is a little restore USB that came with that MacBook Air that can be used to install the OS on the new hard drive.

Great guide, but huge overkill!

As has been mentioned by others, I

1) removed the cover,

2) disconnected the battery (but left it in place)

3) unhooked the cable from the top edge of the hard disk bumper.

4) disconnected the wide 'port hatch' ribbon cable that sits on top of the drive, moving it back but not removing it completely.

5) disconnected the data cable for the hard disk where it plugs onto the logic board.

6) removed the screws holding the hard disk bumper in place

7) removed the hard disk.

Everything else is not needed, and you still have loads of room to work in. The more you touch in there, the easier it is to break something.

Thanks for the guide

Just in case anybody doing resurrection these old things.

As post upside mensioned, there are difference HDD thingy between Early 2008(A1237) and Late 2008 + Mid 2009(both A1304). 1st gen A1237 uses 40pin ZIF connector and internal PATA(=E-IDE) protocol. 2nd gen A1304 uses 24pin LIF connector and internal SATA protocol. They don't compatible each other both cable and disk.

If you want to replace 1g A1237 HDD, you can just buy 1.8" 40pin ZIF HDD and replace it. No problem.

But if you try to replace 2g A1304 HDD, There is no way to buy 24pin LIF connector used HDD or SSD (with proper price, at least). And that's because LIF24 is specific design for some Apple devices. But LIF24 internally uses standard SATA pins. So you can jump from the LIF24 cable's pin header. It provides 3.3v, GND, SATA data A+, A-, B-, B+. If you going to use mSATA SSD or 1.8" SATA SSD, it just uses 3.3v only so jump LIF24 to mSATA should works. By any chance it needs 5v, there's always 5v in USB.
