Hi all,

Just bought a new barebones system which has a mSATA port. I have an old 2.5" SATA hard drive from an old laptop I'd like to use. Is there an adapter that can allow me to make this connection? I'm having trouble finding something that would work.

Sort of. This would let me connect the SATA drive to the mSATA interface, but it doesn't look like it would provide power. And with this particular barebones system (Gigabyte Brix), I don't think the motherboard has any additional power connections.

Any thoughts on a solution that would cover both power and data?
