      To install the battery:

      1. Position the battery in the battery retainer and push down until secured by retaining spring clamp.
      2. Install the rear fan baffle assembly. Align the tabs on the fan with the slots on the rear frame and lower the assembly into position.
      3. Connect the fan power cable to the system board. Here is a closer look at the assembly tab on the slot in the rear frame.
      4. Return the system to the operational position. Carefully rotate the drive bay assembly to the closed position, ensuring that the cables are properly routed in the bay to avoid damage.
      5. Close the top cover. Rotate the cover down until secured by the latches.
