Remove the board by pulling it away from the connector at a
45-degree angle.





Align the keyed (notched) edge of the board with the keyed area in the expansion slot. Insert the board into the slot at a 45-degree angle until it is seated.

Push the front edge of the board down until the retention clips snap into place. Then replace the cover
