Default installing another hard drive

when installing a hard drive in a computer does it matter if it is standing up and down or laying down ?

That part doesn't matter. I've had them laying on it's side, standing vertically, or had them flat.

I even had them upside down and at an angle lol! But, the only thing I wouldn't do it shake it during operational times.

Besides that, it doesn't matter.

Doesn't matter what position it's in, just make sure it's secure so it doesn't move.
