Abstract

This article describes a structure for mounting a frame assembly on a processor system unit, the frame assembly in turn mounting a direct access storage device (DASD). (Image Omitted) Referring to the drawings, Fig. 1A is a perspective view of a processor system unit frame assembly 2. Fig. 1B shows the DASD frame assembly 4. A planar board 3 is located under the frame assembly 2. The DASD frame assembly 4 extends over the planar board 3, when installed, with means for attachment at its front and rear portions 5 and 6, respectively. Fig. 2 is a partial cross-sectional view of the system unit showing the DASD frame in position for installation. Pivot tab 7 of the DASD frame assembly contacts bracket tab 8 of a mounting plate 1.
