Need Desktop HD to laptop Mobo Connector
Where can I find a connector that will allow me to use a desktop HD to connect to the laptop Mobo? I don't mean to use an external, I need something to boot the OS with. (yes i read that 2.5's use less power and space, but I only have $50 in my carputer so far, keeping it budget-simple. Besides I am upgrading my vehicle's charging system to maintain a higer more constant voltage level. And I want a 7200 rpm HD.
mini 44 pin (laptop Mobo) IDE to standard 44 pin (desktop HD) IDE
Or else I have to do this:
will the laptops mobo supply a desktop HD with enough voltage? It's IDE right? just diff connectors?
Also, how do I determine how many ampere's my power supply will draw?
my vehicle stock alternator is 105 amp
vehicle and current draw 60 for vehicle and 20-30 for sound setup. (roughly)
