    Hi and welcome :wave:
    Plugging in the HDD is easy, only has one connector for the data and a molex for the power. Jumper settings are on the info sticker ontop your HDD. The most you'll run into is windows xp not booting properly, in which a windows Repair *Not a Reinstall/Format* will fix.

    If you have any more questions, please start a new thread in the HDD and Network section of the forum with an appropriate title.
