Security system won’t power on when HDD is installed.

I’m working with this security system which is an Odely model K8208-W. When there is no hard drive installed (how it comes by default), it powers on fine and functions without problems. It has a power adapter that has a solid blue light on it as you can see here. After installing this hard drive, the system refuses to power on and the power adapter flashes blue rather than the light staying solid blue.

Any ideas what the problem could be? I’m thinking perhaps the HDD is pulling too much power? According to the manual, the HDD should be supported – it even fits inside perfectly.
