Install RAID Drive
Before you begin, be sure you have:
o Reviewed the information given under Installing Internal Drives
o Removed the drive retainer (see step 1 of Installing Internal
o Chosen the bay into which you want to install the drive (see
step 2 of Installing Internal Drives)
o Removed the hard disk drive assembly from bay 5, 6, or 7 if
you are installing a new drive assembly in one of these bays (see steps
3 and 4 of Removing Internal Drives)
1. Find the bay in which you plan to install the drive
If a drive assembly is already installed
in the bay you plan to use, remove the drive assembly as described in steps
3 and 4 of Removing Internal Drives.
The figures that accompany these steps show the installation occurring
in bay 1. These instructions also apply to bays 2 through 7.
2. Prepare the bay for installation of the drive assembly:
a. Insert a small coin into the slot
of the small knob located on the left-hand side of the bay. (Do not
use more than light pressure to do this! You can snap one "ear" off of
the knob. Personal experience)
b. Turn the knob clockwise, one-quarter
(1/4) of the way.
c. Slide the knob to the left.
d. Continue with the next step.
3. Install the hard disk drive assembly into the bay:
a. Position drive assembly so the connector
is facing rear of server.
b. Align tray with guides, and slide
the drive assembly into the bay.
c. Slide the knob to the right until
it clicks into place.
