Default - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

This is the HD No IDE, not an ULTA-SATA just a regular one.

The motherboard I got came with two Serial ATA cables, I am going to check it out now I don't see why it wouldn't fit!

On a side note, man the SIGMA LUNA case is SUCH A P.I.T.A to install a hard drive. Literally spent 20 minutes lining up the **** hole to lock it into place. Optical drive was simple, took 2 minutes. Hopefully I didn't bang up my HD too much, it was SUCH A TIGHT FIT going into this case I literally had to jiggle it back and forth and up and down.....

LOL oh man I am sorry guys I am an idiot.

It fit right in lol I was looking at it the wrong way, SATA cable is connected to mobo and hd, now hooking up power.

this is it for me, after i have it in I am going to connect everything up and hopefully she will power up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not all sata drives see the usual four wire plug used on ide drives for power. Here's a look at a recent Sata II model showing the lack of that type of power connection.

KennyD The drive there will fit into any standard 3 1/2" drive bay or cage. You should see that partitioned first the way you want it to then be able to put Windows(or whatever OS you want) on it.
