Adding a second hard drive to an Envy 17

I recently purchased an Envy 17, and I purchased with only one hard drive.  I have an extra hard drive already, and thought I would just add it to the system, but when I opened up the laptop, there is no way to attach the drive, as the second bay doesn't have a connector of any kind, and of course, I also don't have the necessary caddy to secure the drive.


So, the question is can I add the second drive, and if so, how do I get the SATA connector, and caddy for the drive?
