Hope I'm not too late.

You can access the hard drive by removing the bottom panel.

You need to first remove the battery cover, battery spacer, and then the two screws in the battery compartment.

Then remove all the large screws on the bottom plate.

Don't remove the little ones that hold the rubber port flaps, just open each flap so it won't get hung up on them.

Then take a flatblade like a mechanics size and insert it in the slot at the top edge just inside from the corners. They will be at the handle end of the laptop.

What you do is stand the laptop up on end.

Insert the blade at an angle while holding the handle in the other hand.

Lift the screwdriver handle upwards so that the blade grips downwards and lifts the bottom off the laptop. The slots I mentioned are not so obvious, but think of them as access holes and the bottom plate is wedged into the case like a can of sardines. If you stick your driver in there you can pry it up at the top and then it will open up and still be attached at the back until you open it up a full 90 degrees.

It will be a little tight at first but once it moves it come off freely with a couple wires attached.

I can send you a photo if you can't find the two openings.

You can access the hard drive in the middle left area without removing the entire cover.

You just need to open it wide enough to pry up the connector from the hard drive where it plugs into the board.

These are supposedly 1.8" drives so most likely you'll need to find an adapter to be able to recover your files. Usually a ZIF to IDE and then use a USB 2.5" enclosure or you might be able to order a ZIF to USB enclosure. I can help you figure that out once you pull it out. I swear I counted 46 pins on the mainboard side. I'm stumped until I see what you pull out of there.

I'm interested in photos and info on the drive and connector since mine is missing and I was to find something that might work instead of paying full cost from the manufacturer.

I also need an AC adapter for this damn thing, but it sure looks cool!

As far as laptops, it's way too heavy but the most Bad *** case on the planet.

Makes me think of the bad guy in those action movies...it's like some kind of super detonator tracking monitoring bleeping minefield activating superslick laptop the hero must disarm or destroy!
