Is it safe to install the old harddrive on this new pc? Also, I noticed there are no pins on the SATA drive to set it to master.
There is an open IDE jack on the motherboard that I was planning on connecting the IDE harddrive to. I want to make sure I do this correctly. The IDE cable I was planning on using has three connectors: "CPU Board", "Slave" (in the middle of the cable), and "master". Even though I don't want the IDE to be the master drive, should I still connect it to the master connector since it is the only device on the cable?
I hope all this makes since! I'm new to SATA so please excuse my ignorance.
Thanks in advance
