    It's the motherboard you should be concerned about. If it can see it no problems but if not you will need an overlay program which you should be able to get from the place where you got the hard drive.

    Ya, it's not the CPU, just the mobo, most mobo manufactueres will have the overlay drivers right on their site. or if you use a separate ide controller since your mobo clearly won't have a newer ata/66 or ata/100 interface it will work just fine since it skips the bios
