Moving the boot media

There is one boot media device in the AFF A250 under the air duct in the controller module. You must move it from the impaired controller module to the replacement controller module.

Before you begin

You need a #1 magnetic Phillips head screw driver to remove the screw that holds the boot media in-place. Due to the space constraints within the controller module, you should also have a magnet to transfer the screw on to so that you do not lose it.

Procedure

Locate and move the boot media from the impaired controller module to the replacement controller module.


Remove the screw securing the boot media to the motherboard in the impaired controller module.
Lift the boot media out of the impaired controller module.
  1. Using the #1 magnetic screw driver remove the screw from the boot media, and set it aside safely on the magnet.
  2. Gently lift the boot media directly out of the socket and align it into place in the replacement controller module.
  3. Using the #1 magnetic screw driver insert and tighten the screw on the boot media.
    Note: Do not apply force when tightening the screw on the boot media; you might crack it.
