Question about PC Desktops
First follow the instructions!
Then physically install the unit into the Systems Box.
First decide if the unit is to be a Master or a Slave - this means that if your unit is to be put on the same cable as a hard drive - then it is to be a slave, if it is mounted on it's own cable - then it is to be a Master, if there are 2 Disk drives on the same cable - then you will have to take out the other one and make one the Master and the other one the Slave. This is done by a jumper on the back of the unit.
Take note that static electricity is your main worry here when handling the units so thoroughly ground your hands against the metal chassis of the case before handling the drives (especially when moving the Jumpers!)
Take off both sides of the case, take out the spare bay cover on the front of the case, slide the unit into position from ther front, line up the unit with the front panel and then do up the 4 screws that came with the unit (there is a row of holes along the side that you can do the final alignment to - insert the screws through these), connect the cable to the unit and the power cord. There may also be a 4 wire sound cable to be attached to the unit as well.
Be aware that anything you touch may be destroyed by static electricity (if you see or hear a spark it may already be too late).
To help prevent this, make sure that
a) you have thoroughly grounded your hands against the metal chassis of the systems box before you touch anything inside (including cables and wires) and that
b) you try to keep your hand in contact with the chassis or touch the chassis as often as you can to equalize the electrical potentials.
Then insert the Disk that came with the unit and run the Installation program.
This should do it.
