Instruction manual 3Install and connect the host adapter Warning! Always handle storage devices with caution. Make sure that you™re properly grounded by wearing an anti-static strap when you install any computer component. If an anti-static strap isn™t available, touch a large, grounded metal surface for several seconds to discharge any built-up static electricity. 1. Depending on the length of your drive, you may need to move the preinstalled screw and stando˜. Place your drive next to the host adapter and note the drive installation holes that match the height of your drive. If the screw and stando˜ are already installed in the correct position, proceed to step 5. 2. Remove the screws on the underside of the host adapter. 3. Move the stando˜s to the drive installation holes that match the length of your drive. 4. Reinsert the screws that you removed in step 2 into the stando˜s and tighten the screws in place. 5. Gently slide the M.2 connector on your drive into the corresponding connector on the host adapter, and press the drive down towards the adapter until the drive is in place. Note: The connector on your drive is keyed so that it only ˚ts one way. 6. Insert one of the drive-mounting screws through the drive and into the stando˜, and tighten the screw. 7. If necessary, repeat steps 1 to 6 to insert a second drive. 8. Install the host adapter in your SATA drive application. For more information about how to install the host adapter, consult the documentation that came with your SATA host device. To remove a drive, remove the drive-mounting screw that is holding the drive in place. The drive will lift up when you remove the screw and you will be able to grasp and remove it.
