Hello everyone,

 

I want to add an additional sata drive to my Notebook `HP 255 g8`.

In the  Maintenance and Service Guide on page 30/31 I found the description on how to do that.

 

I need three parts:

  1. Hard drive cable L52025-001

  2. Hard drive board L52024-001

  3. and a bracket to fix the hard drive.

 

So my Question is, which bracket I have to buy?

In the service guide I couldn't find any part number or any other hint.

 

Thank you for you help!

This is one of those cases where a part is shown but not identified with a number. I found the 255 g6 bracket on eBay for like $10 US but it looks subtly different and likely would not fit exactly. If you use an SSD without moving parts you could get by without a bracket. If it were mine I might try the G6 bracket and see if I could not modify it so I could get at least one screw to fasten it in:
