    I'm running a HP dv8408 notebook with 1.25GB RAM, planning to add a secondary hard drive. There is a second bay in the dv8408. The drive connectors are SATA. My question is: do all notebooks have the some sort of standardized way of holding the hard drives in the chassis? My primary hard drive is clipped to a sort of stainless steel shroud, with two tabs that are screwed into the chassis to hold it in place.
    Thanks in advance for any insight. I figure I'm going to end up talking to HP before I figure this one out.
