    2 sata in mobo

    There would be no problem running only sata drives. The board is actually designed to use the pata controller for Optical drives and the sata for HD.

    2 sata in mobo

    If I get your question correctly, the answer is no. Apparently there are boards that require the sata drivers during install, but I've personally never found one. I am typing this on an MSI board with SiS chipset: didn't require it. Intel boards do not require it. Many others are the same...
