Replace Hard Drive in XPS One All in One

I need a new hard drive for my XPS One and ordered a 750GB from Dell to replace the dying 250GB. I have replaced other parts using the documentation from Dell at this site <ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>.  It illustrates how to replace everything except the hard drive. Is there a message here? Anyone see any pitfalls in doing the replacement?
