SATA and EIDE Drives

Currently using an EIDE drive and want add a second drive (SATA). As my motherboard has connections for both, can I use the two types of drive? The second drive will be for storage.

Yes no problem,
just add the sata drive.

if it wont boot then change the boot order in BIOS as it may be looking for the sata drive to boot from.
