Yes as long as the SATA HDD is set to boot before the IDE HDD in the BIOS.
If I install a SATA HDD instead will I be able to run the Maxtor as a slave drive via the grey IDE connector to copy the files still on it?
Easiest way to do this for me would be to 1: Disconnect the IDE HDD power and data ribbon 2: Fit and connect the SATA HDD and power up 3: Format the new HDD and then install the OS, make sure your computer is running stably 4: Re-connect the IDE HDD and use Windows Explorer to transfer your data across to the SATA HDD.
Please make sure you remove the power cord from the wall before opening your computer case.
