Rotate the drive cage to its upright position.
If the cables are not already routed and attached to the system board:
Connect the SATA data cable to the system board connector labeled SATA1. (Refer to the
hood label on the inside of the access panel for connector locations.)
Route the data cable through the cable guides to keep the data cable from being pinched by
the drive cage when raising or lowering it. One guide is located on the bottom side of the
drive cage (1). The other is part of the chassis frame under the drive cage (2). Routed the
data cable through these guides before connecting it to the optical drive.
