I read that one should go into the Bios and disable the notebook power supply prior to opening the case and installing the SSD card or for that matter other hardware. Anyone here done this or were you just very careful in replacing the parts.
That is my thinking as well. I’ll just ground myself prior to opening and inserting the SSD. Thank you for confirming my concerns.I never heard of that, so I did a quick google, and I found only this one video (and its for a x1 carbon) explaining to disable the battery within the bios, which would in affect fully power down the laptop
All of the other videos I saw just jumped in and replaced the SSD. I suppose it cannot hurt to turn the battery off, but if it were me, I'd probably just power down, remove the A/C power cord and open up the back. If you don't feel comfortable, then yes by all means go into the bios
