    All my current PCs do not have internal SATA header on the motherboard, all IDE. So I ordered 2 IDE to SATA converters from ebay similar to this:

    IDE to SATA Converter

    Problem is now if I use up both IDE headers for the SATA drives either to marry an external drive SATA, or upgrade the current internal Tivo drive I cannot boot my computer either into Windows from current IDE drive, or Linux using IDE CD-ROM.

    Anyone think of a way to get this to work or am I SOL with this setup?

    Try a USB - SATA\IDE adapter.
