Making iMac's 2nd Hard Drive the OS disk
The answer to this question seems to be common sense, but I just wanted to make sure, since I don't know as much about the inner workings of Macs as I do PC's.
I want to know if I swap the optical drive in my iMac with a 2.5" hard drive using the ifixit adapter, can I make this new hard drive the OS disk?
I would prefer using a SSD for my OS disk to improve performance. I just was hoping I could add a SSD to this optical drive position, and install the OS on it, and use the existing 1TB drive in the main position as my storage disk. I feel this would be cheaper and more efficient.
If so, might there be any performance issues by using this secondary slot?
Am I overthinking this? Any and all help is much appreciated!
Is this a good question?
