huh?

just install another hard drive and ensure both hard drives are on cable select... what do you need?

You can use cable select, but you might have to set your old drive to Master and your new drive to Slave. Just physically install the drive, attach the ribbon cable and power connector. When you boot into windows you will have to go to computer management to format the new drive.

Have you been inside your computer? You see the Ribbon? Is there enough room to put another hard disk in it?, If so. Take the Ribbon your main hard drive is hooked up to. Check your hard drive, sometimes they have a design on top showing master,slave,cable. and there is a little black or whatever color, thing that slides on the pins. it shows you which pins to put them on, for master slave, or cable. It is important that the hard drive you have is compatable with the first hard drive. make the main master, the other slave.
