A couple months ago I posted a thread about this mod I was thinking of
http://www.alienowners.com/showthread.php/1718-Alienware-M17xR3-Mod-I-was-thinking-of

Recently I completed the mod successfully and took a bunch of photos with my iPhone 5. Today, I put all the photos together in an editing suite and created a Youtube video. (Note: Im a noob when it comes to video editing. The video is kinda rough and some spots could of used a little more work after viewing it a few times, sorry)
Make sure if you preform this mod, follow the Dell service manual for replacing a M17xR3's Optical Drive and use this video at the same time.
You can find the M17xR3's Service Manual here:

**Note** Any HDD/SSD installed in the Optical Drive SATA connection will have SATA 2 speeds

Overall Im happy with my New Solid State Drive, and I hope this video can help somebody with their install.
My laptop is ninja silent @ bootup :cool:

Enjoy

Seriously it requires that much stuff just to take out the optical drive...?

It does seem a bit excessive just for that. My old Toshiba took 3 screws from the bottom and presto! Also, why would you need to run 4 operating systems?
