    Just a quick question. What do you do when the hard drive on a MP (1,1 in this case) won't come out with normal pulling? Do you try and force it or what? What could cause this?

    Make sure the rear lever is up and the latches visible in front are fully retracted. I have often found it easier to actually grab the drive itself close to the main board and pull from there. I remove the center drives before getting to the front drive above the fan cage.

    Ah - eventually managed to Google a result. Solution for drive 1 (my case) is remove trays 2 and 3, put right hand round the back of the drive and left hand on the front of drive, and pull together. Comes out.
