For the hard disk I let the BIOS acknowledge it. It reports only 8 Gb, but as you can see from the table below, Windows and Linux use it all. Just a caveat: the PHDISK utility used to create the hybernation partition, wants to use the 4th entry of the partition table, but it is unable to address cylinders beyond 1023. So I had to accomondate other partitions around that.

Unlock the clips that block the two flat cables of the keyboard and the small flat cable of the touchpad.
Before pulling out the flat cable, with a small skewdriver pull-up both sides of the clips.
After removing the alluminium cover, you can see the RAM expansion.
Release the video flat cable: you must unscrew the two screws shown in the photo.
After removing the screws from the top, release the top half of the chassis, beware of the two little nails in the back.
I haven't removed the top half, just raiesed it to uncover the rest of the notebook.
Remove the PCMCIA cover and the hard disk cover. To remove the hard disk, pull-up it just as necessary, and push it to the right.
Here it is my 312T at its most disassembled status!
