I just bought a WD Caviar SE 160GB SATA HD 7200RPM from Dell to install in my Dimension 8300. I thought I was going to replace the existing 80GB, but discovered it was in good shape after ordering the larger drive. Now, how do I install it? I've installed other hard drives, etc., but I'm not a computer whiz kid.
I thought it would be best to install the new drive as a secondary drive, leaving the existing one to boot up from. I bought Serial ATA 2.0 cable, but I'm told I also need a power cord for the SATA.
Any and all help appreciated.
There will be two SATA power taps inside the system - use the one that's currently unused.
