"Supports stand ard 3.5 inch IDE/EiDE HDD"

If it came out of your computer it should be OK. Unlikely to be SCSI in which case you would get a SCSI start up screen on boot.

IDE drive is attached to motherboard by (usually a broad thin cable usually (though not always) with an end and a centre connector.

SCSI would be connected to a PCI card.
