Solved!

Can I put a second storage drive in place of a 3.5 media reader?

I am thinking of putting a second drive in HP Compaq Elite 8000 SFF so I can dual boot an OS that doesn't support dual-booting off the same drive. Is it possible to put a drive in the 3.5 bay instead of a media card reader drive?

@DaltonLindemann,

Your answer is YES.  I am linking the 8000 SFF service guide. Look at page 20 thru 29 (drive mount screws).
