Hard Drive Removal

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are replacing a PATA hard drive with a SATA hard drive,

please see “PATA to SATA Hard Drive Conversion”.

Hard Drive Identification:

To determine whether your hard drive is quick-click or non-quick-click, look for a light gray adapter
between the hard drive adapter and the hard drive mounting bracket. See Figure 1. If there is such an
adapter, then you have a quick-click hard drive; if not, then your hard drive is non-quick-click. The PATA
hard drive with a clamp will simply have a clamp as shown in Figure 1. The SATA hard drive is also
shown in Figure 1. The SATA is easily identifable by the lack of a hard drive ribbon cable and adapter.

1. If you are connected to TournaMAXX or TournaCHAMP you must perform an 

Update From Server

before removing the hard drive so that no information is deleted.

2. Turn off and unplug the game.

3. Unlock and open the front bezel.

4. Loosen the screw on the hard drive support bracket and disconnect the hard drive adapter, with the

attached ribbon cable, from the hard drive (see Figure 2).

Quick-Click Hard Drive Installation

1. Reattach the CPU fan mounting plate to the supplied hard drive assembly with the 2 existing nuts

(see Figure 2).

2. Attach the hard drive ribbon cable on the electronics box to the supplied hard drive by lining up the

left side of the hard drive adapter with the pins on the hard drive and then carefully inserting it all the
way into the quick-click adapter (see Figure 3 for proper orientation).

3. Slide the hard drive assembly into place on the electronics box cover and secure it with the sup-

plied screw (see Figure 2).

4. Secure the ribbon cable in place with the hard drive support bracket and tighten the screw (see

Figure 2).

5. Close and lock the bezel.

6. Plug in and turn on the game. The game will reboot twice to configure the hardware. When prompted,

perform a touchscreen calibration.

7. If you are connected to TournaMAXX or TournaCHAMP you must re-enter the dial-in settings after

completing the software upgrade. After entering the settings, make the initial call into the server and
then perform two 

Updates From Server

. Refer to the MegaNet manual for information on how to

perform these functions.
