(NT) Can I send a picture and see if you know where to put it?

Here's my bet.

You may have to get out a drill or other sheet metal tool to make a new place or mount for the old power switch in the new case.

Have I got this right?

The plug from the new power switch does not fit in the mobo.

Can you just swap plugs?

Might be easier than removing the new switch and installing the old switch.

That's why I went for the PDF Service Manual.

It looks like HP has a proprietary power on and wiring scheme so the easy out here is to transplant that button and wiring over.

Now this may challenge folk that didn't take any shop classes or in a school that doesn't teach the basics of drilling, solder work and more.

Yup

Now that I have looked at the power switch connector to the mobo it's best to transplant the old switch.
