By making the screw holes for attaching the sdd/hdd threaded you make it nearly impossible to attach the sdd/hdd. When I did get the screw to catch the drives threaded hole the drive is not against the built-in stand off.

Hello, there are many types of hard disks. It may be caused by the compatibility of the hard disk. It is recommended that you replace the hard disk. Generally, there is no problem with the screws.
