I won it! Paid and now just got to wait.
Better get imaging the drive that's in there!
To take the comp apart you would need taking out all bottom screws, then the keyboard and the top part, since there are screws that hold the board from the top as well.
Just put back the original drive for an experiment and it kept coming up with the same until eventually it booted into my old setup - and it's recognizing my cd drive too?
