This section provides instructions on how to install a new hard disk drive into your computer.
To install a new hard disk drive, do the following:
Remove all media from the drives and turn off all attached devices and the computer. Then, disconnect all power cords from electrical outlets and disconnect all cables that are connected to the computer.
Pull the handle of a spare hard disk drive bracket out to remove the bracket from the hard disk drive bay.
To install a new hard disk drive into the bracket, flex the sides of the bracket properly and align pin (1), pin (2), pin (3), and pin (4) on the bracket with the corresponding holes in the hard disk drive. Do not touch the circuit board (5) on the hard disk drive.
