I got one question: Can I change Dell PowerEdge R410 from version non hot plug to version hot plug?

I bought non hot plug version, but I need hot plug? What can I do now?

Dell Poweredge R410 replace PERC S100 with PERC 6i

See there. The server backplane you have won't accomodate the'd need a new R410.

Is it different case? – Bartosz Nov 29 '12 at 14:59
? The server you have would need a new backplane and internal components. Contact Dell but you won't like the answer. – TheCleaner Nov 29 '12 at 15:07
Thanks, i did contact with dell and they say no, but last time when I asked them if it is possible to change power suply from not redundant to redundant they also say no, but we did it without sending to manufacturer this server. – Bartosz Nov 29 '12 at 15:12
