Yes. And if you have S-ATA drivers then you need to be ready to hit F6 when it asks you if you want to install 3rd party drivers for RAID/SATA/SCSI.
Then when it prompts you insert the floppy and select the appropriate driver (trial and error is fine).
That's the only complication with SATA hard drives, other than that, just what he said.
