Hello mate.

If I understand what you want, why don't you disconnect the data cable of the PATA/IDE Hard Disk Drive, then you could install Windows 7 to C: and after the install create and format the second partition on the SATA HDD, then power down and reconnect the IDE HDD back, that should solve the issue?

Step Two of this tutorial at the first link below has a lot of useful information on using Windows diskpart to create and format partitions before starting the installation process.

Also when you reconnect the IDE Hd, make sure your Sata HD is the first HD to boot in BIOS.
