I don't know alot about PC's but I have more than common knowledge on them. My problem is I have a IDE HD that needs formatted. My PC uses SATA HD connections. I do have IDE ports. I need to know the steps of formatting this hard drive so I can install newer windows on it and install in into a older PC. If I can get some assistance I would much appreciate it. If you need more information let me know. I go out of town almost every week so give me some time to respond. Thanks.
