Hello,
I have hd Seagate Laptop Thin 500GB with dead PCB. And i have donor pcb with similiar series (seagate laptop thin 500GB), but the firmware series is different. The broken hd firmware is HPM2 and the hd donor is HPM6. Could i exchange the ROM to get the data back? Is it compatible?
Thank you

Thank you for the answer
The model is same ST500LM000. But the firmware series is a bit different HPM2 and HPM6. Is it compatible?

Since you already have the board, just swap ROM and test.
