Old HDD, failed years ago, wouldn't mind messing around with it. Been watching some youtube vids of DIY platter replacement and so far so good in terms of at least getting the device to boot up once so I can clone it. Definitely going to give it a shot, HOWEVER, My question is,
How similar does the donor drive have to be to the original one?
I have a:
WD Scorpio WD1200BEVS-60USTO 120gb
and want to put the plater into a
WD Scorpio WD1200BEVS-O8US 120gb
Note the difference in the last 4 digits between HDDs... it was the closest I could find.
