    Hey guys. I'm having trouble sliding out the logic board from the Mac Mini Server. Has anyone upgraded their hard drive? How did it go? Did the logic board slide out ok? I'm following directions from ifixit and the owc youtube video, but the logic board is not coming out, seems glued or something.

    Any advice?

    Those things are in really tight. Instead of putting straight down, try going from corner to corner with pressure until it starts to move. Somebody mentioned in this forum they deformed their holes trying to get the board to move.

    Thanks. That really helped. I didn't want to damage anything but I guess a little force was necessary.
