    This is the standard 22 pin Female SATA connector to a 13 pin Slimline SATA Male connector.

    Item # ADPC22PFWV13PM

    It's $7.75 and is a perfect fit. With this cable, the difficulty of this endeavor goes down to "just a little" :-)

    It completely eliminates steps 17 to 20

    I just replaced my hand soldered adventurous one with the one above and that's a clean and reliable solution.

    Enjoy the 2 drives in the mini.
