  • Did you correctly jumper the HDD?
  • Did you mount it in the chassis with the correct screws?
  • Did the power and data cables go on easily and correctly?
  • Did the PC boot to the floppy and allow you to partition and format the drive?
  • Did the PC's operating system recognize the new drive and allow you to access it?

Well then you are five by five on the non-screw up scale!!!!!
