For some value of "bit of a search". This is part of the stock in
trade of a data recovery company - a large library of donor drives. I
shudder to think how many different drive models there have been in
the world, from how many manufacturers. The number certainly runs
into the thousands.

I specifically mentioned the torx screws because they were the
smallest I had ever seen. They were a lot smaller than the torx 6 or
7 you will see in mobile phones.

Usually IME such PCBs are connected by very delicate, easily broken,
ribbons to the main assembly - hence my warning.

If your first attempt to fix a broken packet dependency fails, you
simply start again. If your first attempt to disconnect that ribbon
results in breaking it, you're screwed.
