Answer to: Install SSD Disk on Mac Pro Early end 2009Here's a more hacky solution. I have a 2008 Mac Pro and a Crucial RealSSD 2.5" drive. I didn't have access to a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter, nor anywhere to buy one easily. I simply installed the SSD drive 'bare' in hard drive slot 1 by pushing it into the SATA connector at the back and then supporting the drive with a small object underneath it. The small object sits on top of the grey box underneath hard drive slot 1 (fan assembly?). In my case a small box of staples was just the right height to keep the SSD drive perfectly straight. This is probably a risky way to install it since if the drive comes in at an angle it might ruin the SATA connector from stress in the plastic. But it works for me for now.
