Is it possible for a second hard drive?
Is there another connection on the motherboard for a secondary sata drive? The teardown indicates it is possible to fit one but is it possible to hook one up?
Released on July 21, 2011. Core i5 or Core i7 Processor. Thunderbolt. This unit is also used to run the Mac mini Server configuration.
There is plenty of room for another hard drive and room to thread another SATA hard drive-to-logic board cable through to an empty connector spot on the logic board. So yes, it should be easy to install a second hard drive. You will have to get another SATA hard drive-to-logic board cable with the hard drive, though. If you do it, let us know how it goes!
