Can't get the hard drive out of the 8570 C Medallion HP

I can't find a manual that describes how to get the hard drive out of the computer. It has two screws on the outside. There must be screws on the inside connecting the hard drive to a fitting. Does the whole cage come out? How?

    Depending on the PC, the cage may have to be removed. I assume you have already removed the power connection and other connections to the back of the drive. But, as melnavz said, it is necessary to determine the computer model first.

If it boots properly without the hard drive then it will have to be replaced.

HP 8570 C Medalion hard disk removal

The side panel of the case should be removable to gain access to the screws. I have also seen versions that the card cage itself is on a hinge, and swings out of the case (with the removal of a few screws) that then gives access to the drive screws.
