Neue SSD einbauen und alte HDD beibehalten?

German: Hallo,

kann ich bei dem Mac Mini (late 2014) eine 2. Festplatte einbauen ?

Ich habe mal gehört das es einen 2. PCI Express Slot gibt der in Frage kommen könnte.

Gibt es einen Adapter von iFixit um eine 2. Festplatte über den PCI Express Slot im Mac Mini zu platzieren ?

German: Wenn Ihr System nicht mit einem SSD kommen schon müssen Sie das Ssd-Kabelbaumgruppe (Apple P / N: 076-00040) zu bestellen, als auch suchen Sie die korrekte PCIe SSD-Laufwerk. Bisher Apple ist der einzige geschmeidiger für die SSD. Darüber hinaus können Sie nicht installieren eine zweite traditionelle HD in diesem System, wenn es bereits im System vorhanden ist.

English: If your system did not come with an SSD already you'll need to order the SSD cable assembly (Apple P/N: 076-00040), as well as locate the correct PCIe SSD drive. So far Apple is the only suppler for the SSD. In addition, you can't install a second traditional HD in this system if it already is present in the system.

is this due to power supply ? the not being able to put second hd


The power supply has nothing to do with it. The design of this series is different than the older model. This series has a PCIe interface for the SSD, unlike the older model which had two SATA connections.
