Insert the SSD, fitted with the bracket, into the location of
the original HDD (usually SATA port #0), and secure it in place.
The HDD is usually mounted in SATA port #0, because booting starts at the lowest-numbered SATA port
and then proceeds sequentially. (Port #0, port #1, port #2, and so on.)
Therefore, you need to mount your new SSD in SATA port #0 (vacated by the existing HDD), which is the
lowest-numbered SATA port.
