SATA and ATA/IDE are two from each other independent interfaces. You have to set the IDE drive as master. The SATA drive is not affected by the jumper configuration of the IDE drive, but an single IDE drive on the cable must be set as master/single or cable select. The only thing you have to do now (after you have set the IDE drive as master), is to set the SATA drive as "1st Boot Device" in the BIOS. Booting from the SATA drive should work then.
