Yes it should work fine. The reference to USB is only if you want to migrate data using an external USB connection (eg using a laptop where it's not possible to connect a second hard drive internally on most models).

(Note: you don't get a SATA-to-USB adaptor with any drives, that's down to you. The drive manufacturer isn't going to waste money including something that most customers don't need).
