Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Most modern motherboards no longer feature legacy connectors such as PATA. You have a couple of choices here. Either use a SATA/PATA bi-directional adapter (probably the cheapest option, but not guaranteed to work correctly), or replace the drive with one that comes with the SATA interface (recommended)

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

There is a 24 pin power connector and an 8 pin power connector that need to be connected. The PCI power connectors are likely for PCIe video cards.
