First, when you receive the mini pc, check the package and its components.
Now make all the memory, storage ready, if you didn’t buy wifi version you should also make wifi ready if you need to use wifi function.
Step 1. Open the mini pc by screwing out the four screws at the back case of the mini pc, after remove the back case you will see the inside motherboard, there are one memory slot (for low power DDR3L laptop memory only), one mSATA SSD slot, one half height mini pcie slot, one SATA port.
Step 2. Plug in the memory, make sure plugin correctly, otherwise it may not recognisable. mSATA SSD and wifi module is same plugged in, then use the small screw to fix mSATA SSD and wifi module.
Step 3. Install wifi antenna(Inner), normally we sell the mini pc with wifi already, so most buyers no need to do this step. If you want to change it you can follow the step here. Screwing out the two screws beside the two antenna holes, remove the panel case, and then put the antenna out from the two holes.
Step 4. Put the panel back and fix it onto the mini pc case by screwing the tw screws we removed in last steps.
Step 5. Fix the two inner antennas by screwing the outter screws.
Step 6. If you need to install one more HDD, go this step; if you use the SSD storage only, you can ignore this step.
In this step, the 2.5 inch HDD should be fixed onto the back case.
Plug the SATA data cable and power cable onto the motherboard’s sata port.
Connect the other side of the cable to the HDD
Slide the HDD to the place on the back panel and match the screw holes, then screw the HDD tightly.
