HP Midline - hard drive - 500 GB - SATA-300

The PN # is : 458941-B21

The specs says that is : hot swap hard drive and internal hard drive.
How can it be ?
Someone told me that you have to remove some parts to convert it to internal drive.

Please advice.
Thanks,

Thanks Andrew !

But what I meant if it is possible to the drive to be NHP and Hot Plug.

The other day an HP Reseller told me that this Hot Plug drive : # 458928-B21 it could fit on a NHP plug server like HP ProLiant ML110 G6 series SATA PN: # BP885A

HE told that I have to remove the sides of the HDD.

Santiago-
The reseller is technically correct - many NHP drives are standard SATA drives without the hot-plug holder. BUT, based on the underlying -001 number found on HP Partsurfer (459316-001), this drive is NHP only. The interface on the drive is not compatible with the connections on Hot Plug backplanes.
