Can't install another HDD in Acer TC-885-ES11

Hi,
The desktop comes with a 1TB HDD but it looks like there is another space to installe another HDD. I've been trying to figure out how to install it but the ''bolt patterns'' are not just aligned well....how am I suppose to install it (see pic)?

Thanks

    It only supports one 3.5 "HDD and two 2.5" HDDs! There is no way it fits two 3.5 "HDDs!
    Compare that and you'll see that a smaller hd (2.5 ") takes only one space! As long as the larger one (3.5") takes both spaces!

    How did the original hd come installed? Can you hit a photo? Make sure a 2.5 "hd fits neatly into this slot!

    Thank you very much for this information, I can't believe that I can't add a 3.5inch standard HDD in this desktop, I'm returning it to the store.
