Wondering if anyone has replaced the internal hard drive on their Gateway XG1, if they could share the procedure for doing so? Some questions I have are:

- Is it pata or sata?

- Form factor: 2.5" or 3.5"

- Filesystem: NTFS, ext3, ext4, etc...

- Partitioning?

- Does the internal drive contain only encrypted recordings or does it have system files as well?

- Can you copy the content from old drive to new drive? Can you connect the old drive to a pc (Linux or Windows) and see the files so you can copy them?
