    How would I power a Desktop Hard drive using a via MII10000 motherboard? Would it take alot more power?

    You don't power a HD using a montherboard

    Yes, it would take more power than a laptop HD.

      oh yea i mean with the power supply, With the M1-atx, would i need something stronger? would the M1-atx come with the right connectors to fit in the desktop HD or do i need to fabricate or buy some new ones?

          Be aware that a 3.5" desktop HDD draws power from the 12v rail as well as the 5v rail. That may present a power issue using the M1ATX.
          A 2.5" laptop HDD only draws power from the 5v rail.

          Something to keep in mind.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?
