Decent ATA controllers are possible. See

SATA cards probably won't work as boot disks. That said, I've heard of
quite a number of people booting from CompactFlash (via IDE->CF adapters
hooked to the onboard IDE) and using add-on SATA controllers for most
storage. Not sure which SATA controllers are supported, but I think the
majority of popular add-on ones should be.

Only heard of people doing this with U5/10 systems, but I can't imagine the
AXE will be any different.
