The bios will have a hard drive setup for the mode and allow you to select SATA/IDE or AHCPI. Gygabite should have the correct drivers for you, go to their website and download theirs. Burn unpacked drivers onto CD. Press F6 and install additional drivers.
IBM clones are for the knowledgeable enthusiast, Apple is for rich dummies who just go to the store and have it upgraded.
