Remove hard drive/side fan bracket from 16500B (first, need to remove top and bottom covers, side cover and rear fan). Then remove side fan from bracket, drill 4 new mounting holes in bracket, mount CF adapter and insert CF card. Insert card in "CF1 master"​ slot, leave other slot empty. Check CF socket for bent pins before inserting card. Reinstall fans and brackets. Be sure to orient 44 pin connector correctly.
