1.IDE is an old interface standard used for storage devices while AHCI is an application programming interface for the newer SATA interface.
2.Most SATA controllers allow you to choose between AHCI and IDE among other operation modes.
3.AHCI has advanced features like NCQ and hot plugging that is not available with IDE.
4.Switching from IDE to AHCI or vice versa after the operating system is installed can lead to problems.
Therefore, in BIOS, when you choose AHCI interface your HDD behaves like a SATA one and when you choose IDE it behaves like an IDE one.

this link has the driver you need for SATA on HP devices.
It also has the full instructions on loading them from a floppy disc. If you don't have a floppy drive you can burn to cd and use that and load as part of the operating system install.

There are two ways.
If you bought a new SATA and get a blue screen when you install win. server 2003, you have to go to BIOS and change HD setting. (not on 1st page for sure. I have to what option you have.)
You have to get it from HP, but I don't know whether they have or they will give you for free.
