  • DVD Drive Install HP DL380

    Hi,

    Anyone know how to install a slim optical DVD drive into a DL380/G7?

    All the official instructions say is, "Remove components that prevent access to the removable-media drive bays" and that (effectively getting access to the drive bays) is the part that's stopping me. At one point I figured that might mean removing the (aluminium?) plate above but it turned out that removing the four side screws did little to free it up.

    You'd think my many, many years of PC building would stand me in good stead but no, it's proving to be a difficult and painful experience (as the blood on my keyboard from a slashed finger testifies).

    I've been searching on Google with no real luck and will continue doing so but if anyone has any ideas ...

    Keke

    Sorted

    Turns out you remove 2 internal screws and the whole cage slides out ... doh!
