just enter in the bios... & navigate to the BOOT device option... there set ur 1st boot device as the hdd1 or what ever number ur IDE HDD has...

look in the motherboard manual. You received with the motherboard or look at the site of your motherboard creator (eg asus or msi)

soem mobos don't allow the two different interfaces to be run at the same time

try using the connecting the ide through a sata connection via an adapter

okay, most sat devices work like this. In your bios each sata drive will be listed asd a seperate ide channel, and the drive is always a master. Enter your bios and goto standard settings where it lists all your drives, go through and press the button on each to automatically find and list it for you, usually enter. If they don't all show up and your sure they work individually without the other, then flash your bios. Look at your motherboard manufacturer's site. It should list the latest bios and the updates it makes. I very much doubt this board would be designed without the ability to run both, so a bios update is your best option.
