    Serial-ATA in 27" iMac
    I really could use some help figuring out why the Serial-ATA device tree has an extra "Intel 6 Series Chipset" but nothing appears connected. I am pretty sure I only have one HD and one optical drive - so can someone help me figure this out?

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    There is another sata connector on the board that isn't used.

    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    Yes second hard drive for say an SSD is vacant. You can get the iMac from Apple with the HDD and a 256GB SSD in slot 2.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
