Desktop Computer

Hard Drive Zinc

Hex Head Machine Screw

I thought these screws would work but they did not.   When installed the drive would not fit into the cage.

Work around... I had some standard PC desktop screws in my parts bin. I removes several screws from other parts of the case and replaced them with the "standard" hex head/Phillips that I had on hand. The entire case is put together with these smooth-head/slotted/torx screws. It's a sub-optimal solution, especially when replacing main board screws.

Good luck and hopefully HP reverses the "head up their arse" situation regarding availability of these proprietary components.
