I have one SATA drive in my machine. Formerly it was connected to the MB at the SATA1 connection. Unfortunately I pulled the plastic part of the connector off leaving the bare pins on the MB exposed. I'm going to try to reinstall the platic part back over the pins. Failing that do I have to have a single SATA drive at the SATA1 connection or will any of the remaining connections work?

Thanks.

Any should do, some motherboards have one sata port dedictated to dvd only but most should accept a hard drive in any sata port.

Make sure since you change the sata port location of your hd to go back in your BIOS to tell which hd to boot from.
