Second Hard Drive Installation/Removal

1. Turn the computer off, remove the AC adapter, turn it over and remove the battery. 2. Remove the optical drive or Hard Drive Caddy in the optical bay by removing the screw on the back of the drive. 3. When the optical drive/caddy case is removed, the secondary hard drive bay will be visible. 4. Remove screws 1-3 from the hard drive bracket.


5. Slide the hard drive bracket in the direction of arrow 4 (it will not move fully out of the bay). 6. Life the bracket 5 up out of the bay (in the reverse direction to arrow 4).


7. Attach a new drive with mounting screws at points 6-9 to attach it to the bracket 10.


8. Slide the hard drive assembly into the bay at an angle as shown. 9. Make sure the bracket slides under the hard drive bay guide at point 11. 10. Slide the assembly in the direction of arrow 12.
