Hi: I want to install a 2nd HD into the Dell XPS-410 and make it mirror my first HD. I just ordered an idential 2nd HD and am ready to do the installation in about one week. Can anyone give me some pointer on this procedure? Pointers regards System Setup and especially the cabling for each of the HDrives.
Thanks
Vern

Check your motherboard manual about implementing RAID1.
It automatically mirrors one drive.

You need a data (SATA) and power connection for the new drive.
Plug the SATA connector into the drive and the motherboard.
Plug a spare power connector into the drive.
