Using a MacBook Pro 2013 ssd in an 2012 iMac 2546

Hello all!

I just got my hands on the imac from 2012 with an empty slot for the blade ssd. I have couple of options, to get an SSD from Macbook pro from 2012 (2B type, 7+17 pins) or from 2013 (2A type, 7+17 pins). They do have different dimensions and my question is mostly if either of the two would fit the logic board of an iMac 27’ from 2012?

Thanks in advance!

Sadly no, the blade drive is not interchangeable between the two interfaces. One is an mSATA and the other is a PCIe/NVMe interface.

Correct me if I am wrong. From what I learned, the Gen2 SSDs used in that era were the mSATA ones in both macbook Pro's and iMacs? And only the Gen 3 introduced the PCIe? Got my info here:


@dimshek - Sorry I much have gotten distracted while writing.

Correct! Both are mSATA but the issue is the space to put in the other drive as the space within the logic board is not setup to allow the other one to fit (either way)


@danj thank you, i had a chance to get my hands on a gen 2a ssd to try it out, will see how will it work. Gonna share the results later
