Hard disk drive removal Internal drives are devices that your computer uses to read and store data. You can add or replace drives to your computer to increase storage capacity and to enable your computer to read other types of media such as CD-ROM.
Internal drives are installed in bays. The bays are referred to as bay 1, bay 2, and so on.
When you install an internal drive, it is important to note what type and size of drive that you can install in each bay. Also, it is important to correctly connect the internal drive cables to the installed drive.
Drives that are greater than 41.3 mm (1.6 in.) high cannot be installed.
Install removable media (tape or CD) drives in the accessible bay: bay 2.
Installing a drive
Remove the cover.
Make sure the drive is set correctly as the master device. Refer to the documentation that comes with your drive for master/slave jumper information.
Pivot the drive bay latch handle toward the front of the computer and pivot the drive bay cage upward, as shown, until it is latched in the up position.
Install the drive into the bay. Align the screw holes and insert the two screws.
Each integrated drive electronics (IDE) drive requires two cables; a four-wire power cable that connects to the power supply, and a signal cable that connects to the system board.
