Installing a secondary hard drive

I recent got a terabyte hard drive that will be my secondary hard drive, but the only trouble is that my XPS STUDIO 7100 DESKTOP had 1 power cord from primary hard drive to mother board.  I hooked up the data cable just fine.  I also need screws for pc hard drive cage because there isn't any to screw in to secondary hard drive.  Can I get the SATA hard drive power cable or do I need a whole new power supply?

Re: Installing a secondary hard drive

Hi spiderman13130,

I would like to inform you that there is no separate power cable that can be installed on the system. If an additional power cable is not available in the system then you need to purchase a new power supply.

Before purchasing please ensure that power supply has an option to connect two harddrives in the system. I hope I was able to answer your query today.

Thanks and Regards
