hi,
i got an alienware for christmas and it of course has two hard drive slots. the issue is the slots sport a real sata connection like a desktop hard drive, this makes really
hard to find a hard drive that actually fits that connection for a laptop. And i was wondering if anyone knew where to get my hands on this drive:

Seagate Momentus 5400 PSD ST91608220AS

for maybe newegg like prices

then i can finally quad-boot MAC OSX86, vista home premium, xp, and Kubuntu/Suse/Centos (anyother distro you can think of) :) :supz: with extra space

can you take a picture of the connection? I'm almost 99% sure any normal SATA Laptop Drive will work

did you honestly think that would work?

Was that called for? Why don't you rephrase that before I change my mind -dicecca112

cpmpal, you need to upload them as an attachment, if you can't do that, PM me and I'll host them for you.
