Internal SATA connected to External SATA without an enclosure

Internal SATA connected to External SATA without an enclosure

Would there be any problem connecting an internal SATA drive using an old PC Power Supply for its power and connecting to an external SATA port on a laptop? Would there be any voltage conflicts?

"If it is an ATX power supply then it will not automatically turn on to power that hard drive.
If it is an AT power supply with the manual power switch, then it will not have SATA power connectors."
