Is this a SATA2 drive in a SATA1 motherboard? or is it IDE? Do you need to install a driver supplyed from your motherboard F6?

hmm almost the same as my problem.
i'm using compaq lappy. i've formatted and unsuccessfully install the new OS.
it said something is missing, cannot install the OS.
i took out the dvd boot.
then, the bios cant detect my dvd rom.
i cant install the new OS.
