    I know I need a Phillips 00 Screwdriver but what screwdriver do I need to remove the hard drive shielding. I googled the topic but I kept getting conflicting information. Some people say I need a Torox T6 screwdriver while others say I need a T8 or does it really matter. Thanks for your time.

    I just performed this upgrade last night (to a 500g Blue Scorpio).

    You need a small philips screwdriver (pretty tiny, like those from an eyeglass repair kit or something) to remove one bracket and a Torx (not torox) T6 to remove the hard-drive pegs that hold it in place.

    Or pliers, which is just as easy :)

    Screwdriver is #0
