For the most part, case installation follows a similar pattern with the only different installation methods being for the drives. Thus, we will focus our attention here.
The ODD installation is very simple: take off the top of the bulldozer front and place the ODD vertically inside. To secure it use the smaller screws provided and then replace the top. Pulling the lever on the side will then open the ODD vertically allowing CDs or other disks to be placed in the tray.

Hard drive installation is similarly easy and involves just removing the bracket, screwing in the drive and reattaching it to the case.
