I'm sorry I can't answer your question directly, as I do not own an Amilo XI2550 and I'm not familiar with its layout and innards.
I'd recommend that you put this question directly to the attention of Fujitsu Siemens Support Team which you can
reach via this site: http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/

I assume though that you do not need the HDD Door Assembly, since your notebook should originally be fitted with this cover anyway.
Also, I suspect that
41 34007439 UWL:83GP75508-00 BRACKET 2ND HDD NV and
41 38003877 UWL:40GP7502C-10 BRACKET 2ND HDD NV
refer to the two-part HDD holder, which keeps the HDD fixed in its place inside the laptop. Actually, this bracket isn't really "needed" for the HD to function properly. It just makes sure that the hard drive can not inadvertently slip out of the SATA connector.
As far as the two cables are concerned, it could be the case that these are already inside your laptop at the RAID controller board.

Have you already opened up the laptop and had a peek with regard to what's inside of the second HD tray?
What I could gather from another thread in this forum about a similar model (XI 2528)
topic,26557,-Hinweise-zur-Nachruestung-2-HD-Amilo-XI2528.html
these different parts are really inexpensive, so it wouldn't hurt your budget if you ordered everything except the HDD door assembly, just to be on the safe side.
Hope I could at least be of some kind of help to you.


Edit: according to this thread here topic,28237,-Wo-ist-die-zweite-Festplatte.html
the notebook should be pre-equipped with the Raid controller and the neccessary cables.
So you would only need the two brackets.
But then again, I can not assure that the same holds true for the Russian models.

Did the Service Center tell you any prices? I'm asking because at least in germany there is an "extra charge for small quantities". So no matter what you order, you'll never pay less than a given minimum (let's say 30 Euro), even if it's only some screws.
Depending on the price of the single parts it might not be a difference for you as a whole if you buy one more or less.

Comparing the two pictures (yours an the one from the second thread) I'd also say there isn't any RAID preinstallation in your book. Therefore, I would order the whole shebang of the parts list, since the various parts don't seem to be too expensive, anyway.

price for controller + 2cables + bracket is about 40$ less, then here http://www.ipc-computer.eu/it-pi-n-Second_HDD_Controller_for_Fujitsu_Siemens_Amilo_Xi_2550-cP-682_40272-pId-1789085.html for example... so i'll try. :D
And interesting note - at my picture there is stub (10p cable) near the DDR slot as i think - this is the 10p port for RAID? So HDD config will change, can i save my Windows installation or no?

The End of the Story:
1. FS Support doesn't know their own parts - the raid controller item alrready contain 2 cables and metal bracket, so i have now 2x30pin cables, 2x10pin cables, 2xmetal brackets.
2. After installing controller and 2nd HDD both installed OS (origin Vista and XP) are crashed (BSOD while booting OS) - unknown raid driver avidently. Vista Auto Recovery program (boot from origin DVD) can't solve this problem.
However, I have 2 HDD in Notebook with new installed OS as I wish!
Thank you all for advice!
