Hard Drive Upgrade Install Guide
Install The Second Hard Drive
To install the new hard drive as a second hard drive in My Super PC, the drive cage must first be removed. The drive cage contains both the floppy drive and hard drive. In order to remove the cage, both the floppy drive and old hard drive had to be completely disconnected by unplugging the power connector for each and the drive cable for each. I could then open the release lever and physically remove the card cage as shown. Click on the picture to enlarge it.
Now it's easy to slide the new hard drive in on top of the old hard drive and insert the mounting screws to hold it in place. Like most things that need multiple screws to install, it's a good idea to not fully tighten any of the six screws until they are all partially inserted. This picture shows one side of the case so you can see that's what I'm doing. Click on the picture to enlarge it. After all the screws are partially in, it's ok to fully tighten each one.
