4.5 CD-ROM Drive
The server comes with the CD-ROM drive already installed. This
section tells how to remove and re-install the CD-ROM drive.
You will need to remove the CD-ROM drive for either one of the
following reasons:
1. You need to replace the drive
2. You need to remove the motherboard. The CD-ROM drive
overlaps with the top right corner of the motherboard, so you
can not get it out without moving the drive outward.
Remove the CD-ROM Drive
1. Disconnect the power and IDE
cables from the drive.
2. Remove the four screws (two
on each side) that secure the
drive to the chassis.
3. Carefully pull the drive out of
the chassis.

NOTE
If you are doing the above procedure for the purpose of
removing the motherboard, you do not have to completely
remove the drive from the chassis. Simply pull out the drive
for about an inch, or until you can access the motherboard.
In this instance, you also have to pull out the hot-swap drive
trays because they, too, overlap with the motherboard.
