Replace 1TB OEM HDD with two SATA drives. One SSD and a Hybrid HDD
I have a nice 2017 27" iMac i7 no nvme.
Ok. I would like to install a 1TB blade drive (1TB Western Digital Blue with appropriate adaptor) where the Apple one would go on the back of the logic board.
But my question is will a 2TB HDD (Western Digital Hybrid hard drive) and a 1TB SSD (Crucial 2.5" SATA) work in place of the Apple 1TB HDD, which is acting wonky?
The reason for using these drives is simple, I had intended on upgrading my 27" 2011 and 27" 2013 iMacs, but "Life" put a few year "not happening big boy delay" on my ability to hold most anything, much less a teeny tiny, itsy bitsy screw or twenty.
And I was given this 2017 27" iMac with aforementioned wonky hard drive.
So I have the drives, a dual HDD bracket (no clue how or why I have it). I am guessing I will need a SATA/power splitter cable? Two temp cables, ya know the not cheap ones?
Is it doable? Thanks in advance.
Have a day most swell, Mark.
