Hi, I'm trying to add drives to the M800/M900 SFF (10FX, 10FY) and need the FRU's for the bays. It is not clear in the FRU list what to choose.
Can anyone clarify for me:
Optional 2,5" bay (under the 3,5" bay) for 2nd drive
2,5" plastic tray (the blue one)
3,5" bay in the 5,25" slot
I guess this is the 3,5" tray (blue one): 00XD462
Solved! Go to Solution.

I believe this Lenovo part 4XF0F33440 (which works in an M93p-SFF, according to the comment at the bottom) could also work in the M800/M900-SFF cases. It's for the second 2.5" drive. You can certainly call IBM Parts/Accessories to confirm.
I recently bought an M800-SFF for my cousin, but ordered it with the "2nd hard drive adapter bracket" (for $10) pre-installed. So all I had to do was install my own 2.5" Samsung 850 Pro SSD in that already present second bracket/cage to go along with the Lenovo-provided HDD spinner in the primary cage, and then "clone" Win7 over from HDD spinner to SSD, change the BIOS boot sequence, and I was up and running on my own installed SSD. I then re-purposed the HDD spinner for "data". I assume you want to do the same.
