Best Buy edition with the one TB HD. Opened it up to check the fan filters and scope out an upgrade.

The sole HD is mounted in the right hand bay which the manual clearly labels as the secondary slot.

Also, one of the fan filters was missing. I replaced it with one of the spares that was packaged with it.

WHat's up with the HD? Everything is working but why is the primary slot open.

This may expain some of the issues folks have been having when trying to upgrade if the disk that is being added is inadvertantly being placed in the primary slot.

It actually doesn't matter which slot it goes into. SATA will recognize either as the primary slot. You can swap it over and there will be no difference.

I didn't get a spare fan filter.. sounds like yours was loose in the box for whatever reason
