While I really love Lenovo computers, the M58e that I just bought (two, in fact) does not have a provision for adding a secondary hard drive. The Hardware Maintenance Manual shows a cage on the bottom of the case, but mine don't have that. The manual, as far as I could tell, did not provide a part number to even order the cage.
It's hard to believe that Lenovo would make a tower that does not have the ability to easily add a second hard drive. What's the solution? Drill holes in the bottom of the case? Unbelievable.

There is supposed to be a plastic blue bracket that is needed to install your secondary hard drive. To me, it looks like it should have come with the unit; however, if not present, maybe you can order from Lenovo by simply referring to it as a blue bracket for the secondary hard drive.

The bracket comes with some models but not others. That's really unfortunate. I drilled four holes in the bottom of the case and bottom mounted the drive, very close to where it would have been if the bracket were present.
