Yes, no problem.  Some older motherboards won't boot from the SATA if an IDE drive is present.

As Callandor noted, it's no problem.   You can freely mix technologies as long as your system has the right controllers ... either built-in or via add-in cards.    I have one "ancient" system with an IDE drive, SATA drive, SCSI drive, and an external USB drive :-)    And if your system won't boot from the SATA drive you can simply install a boot manager on the IDE drive that "points" to a partition on the SATA drive to boot from it.
