  1. 1) What is the problem?
    2) Do you already have an IDE boot drive, or will you be installing the system on this drive.

    Physically, you connect a seven-wire SATA cable to the data connector on one end and the motherboard controller port on the other. You connect the SATA power cable to the power connector on the drive: http://pcsupport.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XL&zTi=1&sdn=pcsupport&cdn=compute&tm=8&f=10&su=p284.13.342.ip_p504.6.342.ip_&tt=3&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//0.tqn.com/d/pcsupport/1/0/5/7/-/-/sata-power-cable.jpg

    If you are going to install Windows, let the installation procedure format the disk. If you are going to use it for data, see http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/265764-32-guide-installed-disk-system .
