Route the new SATA cable through the indentation that the primary SATA cable goes through and into the optical drive bay.
Not all of the 27” iMacs (2011) have the channel in the optical drive wall to route SSD cabling. If you have one of these iMacs, you can simply route the cables under the optical drive.
Set the logic board back into place, being careful not to catch, cover, or pinch any cables.
Be sure that the SATA cable has as much slack as possible and that it is not tangled with any other cables.
Make sure the cables are not stacked on top of each other; they have to lay as flat as possible
