On many HP and Compaq computers, drives are attached to drive cages. Often, the installation and removal instruction for the cages are located next to the drive cage or on the side panel. The following images are some examples of the types of drive cages that come on HP and Compaq computers. For more detailed information about a particular chassis, refer to the Hardware and Servicing guide or User Guide for your particular model of computer.
Many Media Center computers come with a swing out drive bay (shown below). The plastic covering for the memory card reader must be removed and the cord to the front panel lights must be unplugged before the drive bay can be removed.
