First a minor quibble. Don't load high resolution photo's, they take too long to download, and if I weren't waiting for my coffee I wouldn't have waited.
I suspect that your hub and cassette call for a spacer behind the cassette. Check to see if your new cassette is evenly spaced and tight on the hub. It should overhang slightly so the lockring can compress it. If so, you won't need the spacer, unless the RD is too close to the spokes in low gear. Otherwise install this first then the cassette.
