I have a 2013 A1419 27" iMac (i5/3.4Ghz) which had a cracked display. I got a replacement in, but it took me a couple of days to realize I had to move the heat sensor that was on the old display. Prior to that I had been trying everything to get it working properly and the fan not spinning up!
One thing I tried was to reformat the M.2 "Blade" SSD attached to the back of the logic board, but now that I know the issue wasn't the drive or the installation of same, I need to format the drive back to "unformatted" which is what its designation was before.
I've tried Disk Utility, Drive Genius and I've looked at Terminal commands, but do not find a command or item that does what I need. I think possible "writing zeros" in Drive Genius might, but not sure, any thoughts?

I was wondering if this was feasible in the opposite way, if I have a (I do) 2013 iMac with an HDD is it possible to add an SSD as an additional drive? I see walkthroughs for a 2010 which state it can be done on that machine through the purchase of some kind of adapter which connects to the logic board?
also, the drive I'm hoping to Frankenstein is an OEM blade 128gb SSD I pulled out of my 2015 MacBook when I upgraded. I'm hoping this would be compatible?
