Identify Hard Disk interface

I have broken my laptop hard drive so I would like to put it in an external box to backup my documents.
I have a doubt whether the interface of the hard disk is sata or ide.

Inside notes attached, is reported "controller SATA AHCI" but on the model section is given IDE hard disk
