Can I boot from a drive attached to a PATA to IDE converter?

IDE to PATA converters seldom work unless the BIOS supports at least UDMA 5.. and windows 7 will be dog slow with anything slower than UDMA 6 anyway regardless of what the rest of the hardware looks like.
You're better off getting an IDE HDD.
