Well everything says "IDE" there. Not a mention of "SATA".
But I've been told my HD is SATA since it's a pretty new laptop (2 years) and IDE isn't used since about 5 years ago.

So, is it SATA or IDE?
 
You are right, I am wrong. Sorry about that.

Device Manager will show the model of the drive - mine is st980813as. You can also see that by running msinfo32 (an XP tool), navigating down to Storage - Disks.

A Web search on the model number revealed that this is a ST980813AS Momentus 7200.2 SATA 3.0 Gb/s 80 GB Laptop Hard ....

So try it that way, and I'm sorry that I mis-directed you.
