I have a old Philips DVD+/-RW DVD 8701 Drive from a old desktop and I only need it to install windows and the motherboard settings

If you have it, look at the back of it, does it have a large(~2" wide) connector with two distinct rows of pins and a 4 pin connector beside that? Or does it have two mid sized connectors with L shapes to them?

You have the optical drive, it is easiest for you to check.
