So In preparation for upgrades I got planned for my school computer, I've been doing some research. I think I'm all set, except that I'm rather lost as to how to install a SATA hard drive.
My mobo's manual is pretty vague, it just mentions how to plug it in. (http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865glc/sb/cs-008973.htm) I'm hoping that's all it takes (like with IDE drives) and that it will somehow magically show up in the BIOS.
I've read in many websites that sometimes the process is a lot more involved, that you need to load drivers through the BIOS with a floppy (!) disk and some other weird stuff. I think I do remember seeing a floppy disk that came with my mobo, and IIRC it said something about RAID drivers in it.
I know every mobo is different, but how did you go by installing one of these?
Thx in advance
