SATA installation is easy depending on your skill level.
  1. Shut down your system
  2. power off and unplug, disconnect all cables
  3. put your pc on a stable work area.
  4. remove the locking screws on port/left side with the computer facing you for ref. point
  5. remove the shield.cover plate
  6. your sata ports are red in color.
  7. mount your drive and lock it down
  8. connect the sata power cable connector to your mounted drive (See img)
  9. Connect your drive with the red SATA cable to the SATA port on your MOBO
  10. Make sure your connections are secure. Put your side panel back on your pc
  11. connect all your cables and power plug.
  12. turn on your pc, it should begin the post, windows 7 will load and find the new device and then install it.
That should do it for you.
