I bought a new hard disk, but when I try to install it in my computer, it turns out that my HDD has this connector http://i.imgur.com/TjnJj.jpeg

but all the available cable in my PC seems to be of this kind: http://i.imgur.com/rdtRh.jpeg

Does this mean that they are not compatible? Is there any way I can install the HDD, like by buying an adapter? What do I need to be aware of if I buy an adapter?

Why are you bumping? Emerald gave you the correct solution. That adapter cable will work fine.
