Re: SATA as primary and 2 extra IDE drives???
Actually one of the IDE drives will be set to master and the other slave, or both to cable select. Being set to master will have no bearing on the SATA drive as those are set by the system (BIOS if you will) I've attached IDE drives to my system to salvage data from crashed systems and it boots right to the Sata drive and the Master IDE drive just comes up as a secondary drive letter.
