    • How to Upgrade the Amstrad DRX890 Hard Drive

      Basic guide on how I removed the HDD from my Amstrad DRX890-C
      If you wish to follow this guide you do so at your own risk

      Remove the silver side panels by removing 2 screws on each panel and then slide panels off

      Remove the black case by lifting the black clips and sliding the main unit out

      Remove the two cables from the front panel (they are quite stiff)

      Twist the 4 metal tabs on the top of the case (can be done with fingers to avoid leaving marks on the metal) and then lift the top panel off starting at the front of the box

      Remove the front board by twisting 4 metal tabs and pushing 4 plastic ones back through the board

      Remove all the screws and nuts from the metal panel there are lots of screws (keep them in order) I used a adjustable spanner to remove the nuts from the cable connectors

      Use a knife or thin screwdriver to finish removing the back panel

      Unplug the sata cable and the power cable from the HDD there are buttons on the underside of the cable connectors to release them correctly.

      Remove the screw and fan cable connector from the top board

      Gently wiggle the top board upwards to free from connector shown in next picture

      And the final steps are removing 5 screws holding the HDD in place (shown in the next 2 pictures
