Can I add HD to my 27" iMac w/SSD existing?

Most want to replace their existing hard drive or swap the HD for an SSD -- I want to go the other way.

I have a Mid 2010 27" iMac that I bought with the existing SSD installed. I'm now looking to add a hard drive in the bay where there is plenty of space for it.

There is a power cable available, but no extra SATA cable (it is already on the existing SSD.) Is there a way to add the second drive?

A SATA cable comes in the box with a lot of the internal drives, just look on the box. Any computer replair place will have plenty of these lying around that you can probably get for a couple of bucks.

Hello David. What you're thinking of should be possible if you have one of the July 2010 iMacs, as it sounds that you do. There is a third SATA port inboard on those models, but it's slightly tricky to get to and you'll require some non-standard SATA & power cabling, as well as a mounting solution. I would suggest checking out the following site for additional info:

Hey David - Did you ever figure out how to pull this off? I'm looking into doing this as well. I bought a refurbished 27'' imac w/ the 256GB SSD and want to install a second HD for bootcamp. Hope you can get back to me. Thanks

Update

Mayer, thanks for that SSD install link. I bought the following items from AppleComponents.com for the 3.5" HD install. The HD mounting pins are pretty pricey so I ended up buying just the bracket screws. I made my own HD pins by cutting off two of the screw tips. The brackets were mounted to the imac with some leftover screws I had. Hope that helps anyone.

+ good for you, did it work?

Yes, the second hard drive gave me enough room for windows via bootcamp. :)

Let me be more clear: there is no sata cable available on the iMac. Nor is there an obvious port to connect the sata cable were I to buy one. This machine comes with a build-to-order SSD + HD option so I assume it's possible, but it's not at all clear how to do it.

So, my question is: can I add an HD to the existing SSD such that I can have two drives as in the BTO option? The only obvious in-place cable is the power cable. There isn't an (obvious) SATA cable (nor is there a secondary thermal cable.)
