First, you should make changes to the hard disk interface. Now, almost all hard drives are connected through SATA. To find out if your motherboard supports SATA interface , you can read the manual or check online by searching for the exact model and manufacturer's information.
Turn off the computer and all the devices connected to it. Remove the system unit cover and then place it at one side because it will be easier to get access to the interfaces of the motherboard.
After the SATA-interface is found, connect one end of the SATA-cable. Insert the hard disk into the empty slot housing the computer. Next, connect the hard drive to the second end of the cord.
If your motherboard does not support the SATA-interface, or you got a hard drive with an ATA-interface, the connection procedure in this case is not much different. Connect the ATA ribbon cable to the system board and the second end of the line to the hard drive.
If you did not have a free port ATA, then you can use the ATA-train, which allows you to connect a few ATA-interface devices. These cables usually come with your motherboard or you can buy them at a computer accessory store.
After connecting the hard drive close the system unit. Turn on the PC and the operating system will automatically install all the necessary drivers.
