OK your hard drive is an ATA drive.
You motherboard will have two hard disk controllers, on the 1st controller the ATA cable will have two connectors - a connector will have the C drive hard disk attached to it and the jumper on the hard drive will be set as the Master drive. You may also have a CD or DVD drive connected to this cable, if so then the CD or DVD drive will be jumpered as a Slave drive.
If the second connector does not have a drive connected, then you can connect the second hard drive to this connector BUT it needs to be jumpered as a Slave drive.
You may elect to connect the second hard drive to the second IDE controller instead on the first controller. If there aren't any drives on the second ATA cable then the second hard drive can be jumpered as either a Master or Slave drive.
If there is a drive on the second ATA cable you need to determine the jumper setting of that drive and then set the jumper on the second hard drive to a different setting. BOTH drives on the same cable CANNOT have the same drive setting.
After installing the second hard drive, check the BIOS configuration of the second hard drive, if the hard drive is detected then when Windows boots up you will see the hard drive and its contents.

(I found your question because I had the same question. Decided to go for it.) The aluminum top and bottom covers are held in place by the indentations on the sides which fit into channels on the plastic chassis inside. I used a flat knife blade to gently pry by the front end of one side until the cover moved moved slightly out of the channels, then switched to the other side. Once I had it started, I was able to just lever the cover off by grasping the front corners and swinging it up in the reverse motion of the installation procedure. Caution: Prying too hard or far at once will bend the covers and or nick the plastic chassis extrusion. Good luck
