@TD20,

The small SATA data cable is a header on the motherboard. Power does come from a unused SATA power plug on the existing power cable.   Drives are not formatted. You need to do that.  

 

Computer Management app,  Disk Management.  Look for a disk that states unallocated

You must format as GPT.    Do not format as MBR.   See here.   read Part 3.

Right-click an unallocated region on your 'new" hard disk, and then click New Simple Volume.

In the New Simple Volume Wizard, click Next.

Type the size of the volume you want to create in megabytes (MB) or accept the maximum default size, and then click Next.

Accept the default drive letter or choose a different drive letter to identify the partition, and then click Next.

In the Format Partition dialog box:

To format the volume with the default settings, click Next.

Review your choices, and then click Finish.
