You have to remove the DVD and after that you will see the HDD under metal shield held in place with 4 screws labeled M2.5X6. Screw to remove DVD was also labeled (F6).

If you don't know how to do it, i suggest to get on line the service manual for further info.


This will fix your problem.

Where is the location & how to remove the hard drive for toshiba satelite P15-S470


Hi,

The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.

1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you'll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you'll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you'll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.

Below is website with a picture guide on how to remove the hard drive>>>>

How do I remove my hard drive from my Toshiba Satellite R15-S829?


READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH. REMOVE THE BATTERY AND POWER BEFORE ANY WORK IS DONE. HAVE ALREADY BACKED UP ALL YOUR DATA.

Toshiba Support Site warns not to try this at home.

User's Manual does not list HD removal.

That being said.....
this is the instructions for a P15-S479, but may be what you need.

Instructions:
The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.
1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you’ll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you’ll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you’ll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.
Here’s a disassembly guide with pictures: Toshiba Satellite P10/P15 laptops. How to remove the hard drive.


Remember the precautions and warranty information from Toshiba before you start. Try to have someone who is really into laptops before you begin

Good luck

ps: Other laptops have their HD's under the keyboard, or in a removable door on the bottom.

Booting Notebook using external devices.


This should do it for you.

On the Phoenix BIOS:
Go to "Advanced BIOS Features".
Go to the "1st Boot device" and set it to "USB-ZIP".
(Phoenix BIOS, Revision 6. you need to go to the Boot Order screen and select "Harddisk" and hit enter, giving you a list of IDE hard drives this BIOS prefers to call a USB device an IDE harddrive)
