    Hi Guys,

    I just got a DELL GX270 that I plan to turn into a server, the store I bought it from said I could use an IDE drive in it with the proper cables. I have an IDE hard drive so i plugged it in.

    The computer wont recognise it at all. If i boot from it it says its not SATA and if i run Ubuntu installer it wont see it either.

    What do I do?? buy a SATA?


    :(
