Installing HDD drive

I have recently bought HP Proliant DL20 Gen10 NHP and a hard drive LFF DS HDD 861686−B21. It was delivered in a carrier, and I wonder if I can install the drive normally (by installing into the NHP cage and dismounting the front part of the panel protecting the cage) or remove the carrier and then install. HP documetns are contradictory when it comes to supported drives...
