I'd suggest using the free software "Super Duper" to clone the hard drive. It worked wonders for me and after the 2 hour clone, I was up and running in 5 minutes!
I wholeheartedly agree. Super Duper! made the task effortless.
The T6 torx screws on the side of the existing Hitachi drive fit my Crucial M500 240GB replacement perfectly. Be aware that they were originally installed into the HDD with blue Loctite, so it takes a bit of effort to break them loose.
Thanks ifixit for excellent guidance!

What do you do when your laptop doesn't read your new hard drive?
If your hard drive dosent connect. you might need to change your hard drive connect cable . The second option is that you need a strip to replace your hard drive with DVD rom.
