Blade SSD Replacement options for iMac i7 Late 2012 27" EMC 2546
I need help with my iMac EMC 2546 i7 fusion drive (128Gb ssd + 1Tb hdd) late 2012 model, where recently my internal SSD fusion drive was dead.
It’s very strange trouble because this start after updating to 10.15 Catalina from High Sierra (32Bits to 64Bits) all I had was problems. Before to this update all was very smooth and fast (all work fine) and after this update all was troubles.
I lost all my configurations and many apps and trying to downgrade it again to High Sierra the SSD was dead.
From here every time the SSD show me SMART errors, (but before of this it was working perfectly) I searched for information to format it again and under low format also and there was not way to fix it.
I tried all my best and restoring by Terminal, tech tools and many other tools and nothing worked.
I explain all this only if anybody knows similar troubles and know how to fix this SMART issue, because it’s very strange as before I updated the OS all was fine and after the SSD starts with SMART errors. (I find it very strange)
So I’m searching to change the blade SSD with a new unit
I saw this is small SSD board but I don’t find it in any place.
- Could anybody tell me which blade SSD I should to search, type or models available for EMC 2546 Fusion Drive SSD drive.
- Is it possible to replace (without this SSD drive) internally a new 2,5 HDD + one SSD NAS Like an IronWolf Solid State Drive ???
- Maybe one SSD into an external box by thunderbolt 2 will be enough fast and easy??
Thanks and Regards!
