SOURCE: NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability
You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive

Good day sir/maam, yes you can use a 1 TB HDD, get the SATA version depending on the bios but im not sure it be compatible with SATA1 on your motherboard, any new hard disk canor cant be read by any old motherboard, you may have problems with SATA versions, there are 3 versions, but the problem is the response of the hard disk. The rule of thumb, fast motherboards, for large hard disk, because it can access large amount of data very fast usually they are SATA3. So slow motherboards with large hard disk is kinda slow, you be bored. I suggest you stick on the recommended hard disk. If you want extra storage, get 3 hard disk and daisy chained them as master/slave.
