Storage Drive Population Rules

When populating the storage drive slots, use the following rules:

  1. Every slot in the storage drive bay must contain either a storage drive or a a drive filler panel.

  2. Sort disks by capacity and technology (HDD vs SSD) and install in this order:

    1. Install the HDDs first, starting with the smallest capacity in the drive slots in ascending slot order (0, 1, etc.).

    2. Install larger HDDs in increasing capacity and into storage slots increasing in number.

    3. Install SSDs into remaining storage slots increasing in number.
