    "You could try booting up the computer with only the new drive attached. To be sure, it won't boot since there is no OS to load, but power will be supplied to all the fans, boards and the HDD. (The computer will stall and give the error message "no bootable device" (or similar))."

    can i just turn the computer off afterwards (my new hd doesn't have an os, it's just a media storage) without screwing up the hd?

    i can't remove the drive cage. it's stuck there. i can remove the HD and put it on the cardboard, but that would cover the breathing holes....wouldn't it?
