Antwort auf „Can I remove failed NVME M.2 Blade drive and just use an SSD?”Just to add to this, I just had the hard drive in my 27-inch 2017 iMac fail. The setup was a fusion drive with an SSD and a (2 TB) HDD. It was the HDD that failed. I pulled out the HDD and replaced it with an SSD (2 TB). I'm booting from that and ignoring the SSD. My iMac has been restored, and it works better than ever.
Antwort auf „Can I remove failed NVME M.2 Blade drive and just use an SSD?”Todd's question has not been answered. Here is what he is saying. His iMac 27-in came with two drives, an SSD blade and and HDD. The two are linked as a fusion drive. His SSD has failed. His plan is to remove the SSD entirely and not replace it. He'd like to leave the blade slot empty. Instead, he would like to remove the HDD and replace that with OWC'S upgrade kit. In place of his HDD, he would now have an SSD. After the repair, his computer would run solely on the SSD (installed where his HDD used to be), again, with an empty blade slot. His question is: Will his Mac run normally in the above scenario?
