Run it by the repair place before you do this. 

The offsite facility Apple uses for repairs (which also does repairs for 
several other companies) refuses to work on "incomplete" machines. 

Keeping the original around to drop in before a repair can avoid hassle.

Yes, this is stupid. 

But there it is.
