Hello~
I plan on adding a second hard drive to my system (currently have a 500gb harddrive in my desktop) Now, I never have install a second hard drive before..so I was wondering if there was something I need to do in bios in order to get the second hard drive working?

If the new drive is SATA the just plug in the data and power cables and you are good to go.

Once you've installed the drive and and booted your system, you'll probably need to go into Disk Management to partition and format the drive before you'll be able to use it.

Oh, alright. Yeah, it is a Sata hard drive. I plan on formatting my old hard drive as well when I plan on upgrading the rest of my system. Thank you for the response~
