Hard drive removal movie


Text of the audio portion of this movie

To install the hard disk drive:

  1. Position the tray over the drive and flex the tray to allow the pins in the tray to seat in the holes in the drive.
  2. Align the drive tray with the channels in the drive bay and insert the drive into the bay far enough to allow access to the cables.
  3. Connect the power cable and the SATA cable.
  4. Push the drive in until it latches in place and route the cables into the cable clamp.
  5. Return the system to the operational position. Carefully rotate the drive bay assembly to the closed position, ensuring the cables are properly routed in the bay to avoid damage.
  6. Close the top cover. Rotate the cover down until secure by the latches.
