  1. it might start the boot process but will BSOD since it will run into driver issues.

    try booting into Safe Mode first.

    if the HDD has XP on it, XP might not recognize the SATA controller.
  2. Can i use the ide to pci card... will it work then.
  3. you should have an IDE port on the motherboard; however, like I said before you will most likely have BSODs due to driver problems.

    also some IDE to PCI cards can not be booted of from
