As long as your motherboard support both types, then it should be fine. That's how I have it.

Yes...one can be either SATA or IDE. Just make sure, which ever is the OS drive, is set to master.

i have both a sata and an IDE drive in my system, and both have an OS on. I have the IDE set as master, and the sata ive never changed, so i guess thats as master too.

so yeah, you can mix'n'match sata and IDE
