Install a Storage Drive

  1. Remove the replacement drive from its packaging, and place the drive on an antistatic mat.
  2. If necessary, remove the drive filler panel.

    The system might have filler panels covering unoccupied drive slots.

  3. Align the replacement drive with the drive slot.

    The drive is physically addressed according to the slot in which it is installed. It is important to install a replacement drive in the same slot as the drive that was removed.

  4. Slide the drive into the slot until the drive is fully seated.
