Re: Question about Hard Drive
What kind of connection does it use? SATA, IDE? I'm pretty sure it may be SATA since most computers now use those. If IDE, you need to make sure jumpers are set correctly (mostly they are set to Primary Master). Then install Windows or software from your System Restore Recovery CD. After that, you may install additional drivers if you want and other apps you use.
