Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just Recieved my HP Pavilion Gaming 790-0020 and want to add the 1TB SATA drive from my old PC but I am having trouble identifying what mounting bracket I need.  Can someone please point me in the right direction?

@Corey_S,

The screws are called "HP Blue Isolation" screws.

Problem is that unless you already have the secondary hard drive power cable (proprietary 6 pin cable) your not going to be able to power the drive.  The cable is only sold in Europe, and is $56.   The cable and pics.

 

Some read on the issue.
