  1. 4 wd 320gb sata? it in a raid?
  2. No is in IDE
  3. Did you try just connect with the OS disk?
  4. its not that easy because all the drivers windows has installed is for the old motherboard and system

    your best chance of it working is IF you can boo into safe mode and remove drivers for stuff that isn't there

    but that's gonna leave you with a swiss cheese hole filled system - your best option is to get a copy of the DVD or to buy one, and do a fresh install
