Will this HD work on my old motherboard? Is the SATA going to work on all my SATA slots?

That motherboard model is rated as having SATA 2 standards. The drive is rated as newer.
Performance will not be optimal, but the drive should be configurable to an older standard.
The BIOS may not accept the full capacity of the drive, unless partitioned within its limits.
