Optional hard drive mounting bracket removal or pivoting movie

The optional hard drive mounting bracket can easily be pivoted upward or removed if necessary to enable replacement of some CRUs and FRUs.

Note: There appears to be two drive bays in the bracket. However, due to thermal restrictions, only the bay (2) at the rear of the chassis can be used to install a hard drive.
