Replacing the boot media

You locate the failed boot media in the controller module by removing Riser 3 on the controller module before you can replace the boot media.

About this task

You need a Phillips head screw driver to remove the screw that holds the boot media in-place.


  1. Locate the boot media:

    Air duct
    Riser 3
    Phillips #1 screwdriver
    Boot media screw
    Boot media
  2. Remove the boot media from the controller module:
    1. Using a #1 Phillips head screwdriver, remove the screw holding down the boot media and set the screw aside in a safe place.
    2. Grasping the sides of the boot media, gently rotate the boot media up, and then pull the boot media straight out of the socket and set it aside.
  3. Install the replacement boot media into the controller module:
    1. Align the edges of the boot media with the socket housing, and then gently push it squarely into the socket.
    2. Rotate the boot media down toward the motherboard.
    3. Secure the boot media to the motherboard using the boot media screw.
      Do not over-tighten the screw or you might damage the boot media.
  4. Reinstall the riser into the controller module.
  5. Close the air duct:
    1. Rotate the air duct downward.
    2. Slide the air duct toward the risers until it clicks into place.
