Question, Is there a way to run a SATA2 hard disk on a motherboard that only supports SATA?

Yes, SATA and SATA 2 are cross-compatible.

The whole SATA standard is "supposed" to be cross compatable but there are known issues with specific mainboard chipsets (mostly via) where a chipset driver update is required to fix the issue.
Check your motherboard and\or system maker for any known updates addressing the problem.
