Well if your using it as your main drive, then your gonna have to reinstall the OS, or ghost it to the new drive. If your using it as storage, then just connect it up and format it from computer management.

I never needed mine when i installed vista. You will know if you need the disk because it wont see your HDD when you try to install the OS

If your motherboard supports SATA, the Raptors are a great way to go. Make the Raptor your primary (main bootable drive), the just plug your older hard drive on IDE1 (Primary Master) or SATA 2 depends on what kind of connectivity it has.

You just need to format it. Change the boot order to your new drive aswell
