    RM All In One And New HDD

    I have been given an RM All In One [No manual or handbook] I have successfully added 256 Mb of RAM: That was easy. I would like to change the HDD for a bigger one, but I can’t see how to get into where the HDD is stored [the base I am assuming] It seems to be riveted closed. Can anyone tell me what I am missing/where I am going wrong?

    Thanks.

    Can you just clarify whether it's an All-in-one or an RM One?

    It is an RM All-in-one: Desktop not laptop RM One.

    Nah, that's an RM Mobile one.

    All in one
    RM One.

    Are you sure they're rivets and not Security Torx bolts?

    We got an RM One that came with these in the back panel which covers where the leads go in. Had to phone RM and ask them to send us the driver!

    These look a bit like rivets, but they are actually Torx heads (you know, the little star shaped hole in the top of the screw) but with a rod in the centre of the star so you need a hollow bit to undo it rather than a regular one. If it's those, RS and CPC both do sets of security torx bits for a couple of quid or so.

    Whoops! My mistake. It is the first option listed: The RM All-In-One. Thanks for sticking with me.

    Looking at it from the back at the base there should be 3x screws top left, top right and top center (of the base). If you remove either the top left or top right hand screws you should be able to slide the black covers off.

    I think you'll need the two side panels off. You'll need the little allen key with the hole in to get it off.
