Conclusão

To install a new hard drive into this computer, follow these instructions in reverse order. Begin by unscrewing the mounting screws from the old hard drive and screwing them into the new hard drive.

If you plan to use the current hard drive as an external hard drive, leave the mounting screws in place. Purchase a hard drive enclosure to keep the hard drive in.

Can I remove the old harddrive as instructed above and just have macpro use and external harddrive?

Ron - Responder

The computer should work fine without a hard drive installed, but you will want a high speed external hard drive that connects over something faster than USB2 in order to have a usable experience. Depending on the model of computer you have, the drive could be connected over Firewire, Thunderbolt, USB3, or USB-C.
