Im not sure what you are trying to achieve by doing that. Do you want to replace your internal ide harddisk with a sata harddrive to install your OS bcoz as far as l kno l have yet  to see a laptop which takes 2 internal disk.

Bt you can still get ide to sata cables which you can fiddle around with and maybe get it working inside to laptop provided you hav enough space.

I wanted to completely replace the IDE Harddrive with a SATA one. I tried the cables thing, but the space just isnt enough...

if it was a desktop it would work but because its a laptop they are designed to maximise there space usage which makes adapters impossible to use

There is absolutely no way because there is not enough space in your laptop to fit an adapter without leaving it looking clumsy. Like MacD says, you could get a [sic]cable/adapter provided there is enough space inside your laptop.
