RE: Instructions for adding a second and/or third Western Digital SATA HD to my new Dell XPS 8910
When purchase a new hard drive there are basicly 2 types. 1-bare bones no sata cables. 2-these have a sata cable included. The sata cables are only abou $2.00 at my local computer store. I now do not add any hard drives to any machines i buy. I instead use a 4 bay external hard drive enclosure and a 8 bay hard drive enclourse. One for each machine. The 4 bay can go up to 4 gig and the 8 bay up to 8 gig per drive. Installing a sata drive in a newer computer is just putting the drive in a drive slot , hooking up a sata cable from drive to motherboard connector , and the power connector. Nothing else needs to be done with the hardware install.
