Hi, I have an hp pavilion slimline s5-1204, and I'm trying to remove the hard drive and replace it with another so I can make a media recovery usb save... I've looked every where and can't find anyone having this problem. On the hp support site, there's a video indicating a metal latch on the front of the computer that is supposed to release the hard drive when you pull it up. I've pulled the latch and hard drive as told to do so but it doesn't budge a bit, I've pulled and pushed the latch so hard Until my fingers can't go anymore. Is there another way to get it out? Am I missing something?
