use a good quality drive such as samsung/toshiba etc.
it just need to have the 2.5 format and sata connections be fast enough and big enough for all you stuff.
most laptop drives are 4200 if you are not doing anything with graphics or video then, it might be ok. professional users will buy 7200 speed drives
Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: how to download the driver
I am not familiar with Linux but have you checked your Bios to see if Sata Hard Drive is recognized in there??? Most of the time you have to set the bios to recognize a Sata drive because 90% of Hard Drives are still IDE and most bios software is still recognizing the IDE drives. I know I had to reset everything on my Motherboard and Bios when I changed over from an IDE to SATA Hard Drive.
