An IDE to SATA converter is designed to convert a standard IDE drive for use with a SATA interface.
Intel does not support the use of IDE to SATA converters, however limited testing indicates that such converters may work with the SATA feature of Intel® Desktop Boards. The IDE drive may need to be configured as a SINGLE drive (usually by setting a jumper). The drive may not be recognized by the system if it is set as Master, Slave, or Cable Select (CS).
