Problem with installation last three blades in C7000

I've a C7000 with 2 BL685 and 8 BL465. The customer has purchased 2 new BL465 and 1 BL685. When I install BL685 in slot7 i can't install the other BL465 because i have extract the double metal guide in slot 7 and 8. Is this configuration possible? If yes is there a new single metal guide to install the last Blades? Thanks in advance

Hi,
I have similar problem and I didn't find any solution (except in my case I am a customer ...)

Mixing FH and HH servers within the same power zone is not possible today. Don;t try to make it fit as you will bend the pins on the midplane and/or destory the connector on the blade as they will not line up. The only exception is if you have a Storage blade - in that case, the storage blade can be used on the bottom and the server blade on top.

If I understand right your answer to Marino, in my case we need to remove server in buy 14 - so we will end with two unused buys ?
