Yep. And, if, you are going RAID... don't forget to configure bios for the RAID/AHCI and configure your RAID setup in the bios before you install Windows. Also, most manuals from the major MB makers have a decent walk throughs on the installation of RAID If it is just one drive, no RAID and for AHCI, just skip the first sentence on the RAID setup, but you will still need to tell the bios AHCI and or RAID/AHCI; just not setup an array. And, depending on your build, the chipset and ports you use will determine which drivers you may need. You may need Intel drivers, if you are using the Intel chipset or AMD, if, it is an AMD based chipset or Marvell drivers, if, you are using the Marvell controller on some boards. If you run into problems, you have a whole forum to help you, a fellow member in fine standing.
