    i'm pretty sure i've already answered this question for you, but no, you won't do any damage. the drive will either be recognized or it won't. if it is recognized, then go for it.

    i think i mentioned that i flashed the hitachi 78fk off the sata connections off my motherboard a few days ago (see link below). it worked fine.

    make sure raid is set to "no" or "off". other than that, you don't have to do anything. when you hook things up, turn on the xbox 360 a second or so before your computer.

    i don't remember where i saw it. if you can't find it, it's not on. i don't think all bios have that setting. just go ahead and see if your hitachi is recognized by your pc
