    I have a ThinkPad that I converted to SSD with a mSATA > IDE adapter board, and I was wondering: can I use the same one in a IDE equipped Toughbook for sh*t's 'n giggles?

    Some adapters have fitment issues. It is trial and error.
    If it already works then that is half the battle. When I was buying those cheap adapters the failure rate was quite high.

    I have some smaller Msata to IDE adapters and they worked but speed was locked to 30mb/30mb on transfer speed. It probably is going to depend on your adapter.

    Have fun. Drop everything into C:/, execute UDMA.bat and watch your mSATA > IDE eqipped CF-18/29/M34 run at UDMA6 speeds.

    Only tested on the M34 Mk7 with the 855GM chipset however.
