Removing a Hard Disk Drive

The hard disk drive is preloaded with the system
recovery partition of your PC.
One of two types of hard disk drive is installed in your
PC: a Serial ATA (advanced technology attachment)
drive that uses a narrow data cable, or a Parallel ATA
drive that uses a wide data cable.
The hard disk drive of your PC may be located inside
a cage. If it is, follow the first set of instructions,
"To remove a hard disk drive (with a hard disk drive
cage)" on page 9. If your hard disk drive is not
located inside a cage, follow the second set of
instructions, "To remove a hard disk drive (without
a hard disk drive cage)" on page 10.
