It is not smart to switch a IDE with a SATA,
it should be IDE with IDE and SATA with SATA
Each transmit diffrent levels of instructions.
The clicking is definitely not a good thing. It means you nearly shorted something out to the point where its not sending the correct impulses in power. Most likely the hard drive might be able to work. but the clicking means its blocked or somethings preventing the head from moving or doing what its supposed to do. You will need a new Hard Drive.
My recommendation is to send your old HDD to have it recovered in a clean room if you want your data from it. or replace board with like board, being exact. other wise switch the board and have a high level format for the clicking. Its the only real way to fix a HDD, but its not worth it for the cost that you will be charged. Your better off buying a new HDD
