Mini PCI-e SSD for boot?

iMac has a Mini PCI-e slot, occupied by the wireless card that can be used for other purposes such as additional SATA ports.

This got me thinking. There are mini PCI SSDs. Can I use this slot for an SSD? Anybody know if it's been done yet?

this is a great questions... i have been trying to research this issues for a few hours now. so far i found two individuals who have said it is not possible. however, i intend to buy a mini pcie ssd card and attempt this procedure myself. (imac 24" 2.8ghz).

Update

FYI - Here is a link to someone who claims that their 2008 imac was able to read a mini PCIe SATA SSD: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.p...

So it seems there are interfaces which are physically identical to mini PCIe, however, differ electronically. For example, mSata can be had in the form of a PCI Express Mini Card-like connector, however, electrically it is SATA. So, unless the mini PCIe slot in the imac is wired as mSata (which it most likely is not - working to confirm this) than plugging in a PCIe mSata SSD will be fruitless. However, there is a RunCore Mini PCI-E PATA SSD which could possibly work and possibly others... looking into it within the next few days.

interesting info on that forum, so I guess we won't know before trying, cause he had success on 2008 iMac but not in 2010 iMac.

It would nice to know also random read/write parameters of PCIe mSata SSD. I mean if on my iMac 2006 is not much better than my actual HDD (which is 75/85 if I remember right) it's not worth it
