    The M10000 doesn't support SATA, so you either need a PATA hard drive or a PCI SATA controller.
    I'd recommend the PATA hard drive.


    Yet another case of poor research & planning resulting in delays and additional expenses for a project.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
