Solved!

Remove and Replace the External Hard Drive on HP OMEN 880 Gaming PC replace with SSD

HP Recommended
HP Omen 880-181
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I remove and replace the External Hard Drive on HP OMEN 880 Gaming PC replace with SSD? The drive tray doesn't seem standard and doesn't seem to be compatible to standard 2.5 HD kits.  Is there a standard kit for this?

Thank you for the document. It confirms my assumption. The top drives are 3.5 drives. the Side drives can be 3.5 or 2.5 drives. I move the top 3.5 HDD to a top bay and put the SSD in a side slot. I was discouraged to see that they did give me two power cables in the side slot but only ONE data cable.
